Ejections: Brian Knight (1)
HP Umpire Brian Knight ejected White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski for arguing a strike call in the top of the 6th inning of the White Sox-Rays game. With two outs and one on, Pierzynski hit a 0-1 fastball from Rays pitcher Wade Davis for a groundout. Replays indicate one callable pitch during the at bat, a borderline fastball ruled a strike, which was outside the bounds of the strike zone. Because this one call did not have a realistic effect on the outcome of this at bat, this call is correct under Rule 6.e.iii. At the time of the ejection, the Rays were leading, 4-1. The Rays ultimately won the contest, 4-1.
This is Brian Knight (91)'s first ejection of 2011.
Brian Knight now has 4 points in the Umpire Ejection Fantasy League (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
This the 11th ejection of 2011.
This is the 4th player ejection of 2011.
