|Gosney ejects Saveur.|
In the bottom of the 8th inning of the International League's Wilkes-Barre Yankees-Pawtucket Red Sox contest, with one out and one on, Yankees batter Melky Mesa hit a 0-0 fastball from De La Torre to deep left field and toward the foul pole. Initially ruled a foul ball by home plate umpire Gosney, after consultation with crewmates Chris Ward (1B) and A.J. Johnson (3B, working at the second base "B" position, or "Position 3"), the call was reversed to that of a home run. Limited replays do not indicate the flight of the ball relative to the foul line, the call is inconclusive. At the time of the ejections, the Yankees (Scranton/WB) were leading, 8-2. The Yankees (Scranton/WB) ultimately won the contest, 8-5.
