MLB Ejections: Tom Hallion (2, 3; Hawkins, Terry Collins)
HP Umpire Tom Hallion ejected Mets P LaTroy Hawkins & Manager Terry Collins for a repeat visit argument concerning a hit-by-pitch call (unsportsmanlike-NEC) in the top of the 7th inning of the Reds-Mets game. With
two out and two on, Phillies batter Brandon Phillips took a 1-2 fastball from Hawkins for a hit-by-pitch call and first base award. Replays are inconclusive as to whether the pitch hit Phillips' hands or the knob of his bat first (in contrast to the broadcaster's assessment, order does matter); Collins argued the call at the time of the incident, which therefore renders the post-inning argument a repeat visit ejection, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejections, the Reds were leading, 4-3. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 4-3.
These are Tom Hallion (20)'s second and third ejections of 2013.
Tom Hallion now has 6 points in the UEFL (2 Previous + 2*[2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable Call] = 6).
Crew Chief Tom Hallion now has 4 points in the Crew Division (2 Previous + 2*[1 Irrecusable Call] = 4).
These are the 36th and 37th ejections of 2013.
This is the 16th player ejection of 2013. Prior to his ejection, Hawkins' line was 1.0 IP, 0 ER.
This is the 18th Manager ejection of 2013.
These are the Mets' 1st/2nd ejections of 2013, T-1st in the NL East (NYM, WAS 2; ATL, PHI 1; MIA 0).
This is LaTroy Hawkins' first ejection since August 4, 2010 (Tom Hallion; QOC = U [Intent HBP]).
This is Terry Collins' first ejection since August 21, 2012 (Fieldin Culbreth; QOC = Y).
This is Tom Hallion's first ejection since April 28 (Jeremy Hellickson; QOC = U).
