Ejections 093, 094: D.J. Reyburn (4, 5)
2B Umpire D.J. Reyburn ejected Royals SS Alcides Escobar and Manager Ned Yost for Unsportsmanlike-NEC (repeat visit argument) in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Twins-Royals game. In the bottom of the 7th inning with two out and two on, Escobar hit a 1-0 slider from Twins pitcher Tyler Robertson to shortstop Brian Dozier who threw to second baseman Alexi Casilla to force out Royals baserunner R1 Chris Getz at second base. Though replays indicate Getz arrived at second base prior to the catch, the ejection occured two innings later and significantly after the call had already been argued, the call is irrecusable.* At the time of the ejection, the Twins were leading, 7-3. The Twins ultimately won the contest, 7-5.
D.J. Reyburn now has 7 points in the UEFL (1 Previous + 2*[3 AAA + 0 Irrecusable Call] = 7).
Crew Chief Jeff Kellogg now has 5 points in the UEFL's Crew Division (3 Previous + 2*[1 Irrecusable] = 5).
*This call is irrecusable pursuant to UEFL Rule 6-2-b-5-b (repeat visits) & is known as the DiMuro Rule.
These are the 93rd and 94th ejections of 2012.
This is the 37th player ejection of 2012.
This is the 47th Manager ejection of 2012.
These are KC's 4th and 5th ejections, T-2nd in the AL Central (DET 7; KC, CLE, CWS 5; MIN 4).
This is Alcides Escobar's first career ejection.
This is Ned Yost's first ejection since June 14 (Dan Iassogna; QOC = Correct).
This is D.J. Reyburn's first ejection since July 8 (Robin Ventura; QOC = Correct).
