MLB Ejection 026 & Replay Review 180: Hamari, Miller

3B Umpire Adam Hamari ejected Mariners 1B Coach Andy Van Slyke for arguing a check swing (ball) call in the bottom of the 9th and Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Bill Miller's out call in the top of the 5th inning of the Mariners-Yankees game. In the 5th, with none out and none on, Mariners batter Mike Zunino hit a 1-2 sinker from Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia on the ground to second baseman Brian Roberts, who threw to first baseman Mark Teixeira as Zunino arrived at first base. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Mariners Manager Lloyd McClendon, Miller's ruling was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Yankees were leading, 2-0.

In the 9th, with two out and two on, Yankees batter Brett Gardner attempted to check his swing on a 1-0 fastball by Mariners pitcher Fernando Rodney. Replays indicate Gardner did not attempt to strike the pitch, the call was correct.* At the time of the review, the Mariners were leading, 6-2. The Mariners ultimately won the contest, 6-3.
