Ejection 059: Tim McClelland (1)
HP Umpire Tim McClelland ejected Rangers catcher Yorvit Torrealba for arguing a safe call in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Rangers-Angels game. With one out and three on, Angels batter Kendrys Morales hit a 2-0 fastball from Rangers pitcher Koji Uehara to right fielder Nelson Cruz, who threw to catcher Torrealba as baserunner Mike Trout attempted to score from third base on the sacrifice fly. Replays indicate Trout's foot contacted home plate scarcely prior to Torrealba's tag contacting Trout's person, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Angels were leading, 3-1.
This is Tim McClelland (36)'s first ejection of 2012.
Tim McClelland now has 4 points in the UEFL (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
