MLB Ejection 041: James Hoye (2; Bud Norris)

HP Umpire James Hoye ejected Orioles P Bud Norris for Throwing At Tigers batter Torii Hunter in the top of the 8th inning of the Tigers-Orioles game. With two out and one on, Tigers batter Ian Kinsler hit a home run to left field. Immediately subsequent, Hunter took a 0-1 fastball from Norris for a hit-by-pitch, resulting in a bench clearing incident. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and belt-high, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Tigers were leading, 4-1. The Tigers ultimately won the contest, 4-1.

This is James Hoye (92)'s second ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
James Hoye now has 3 points in the UEFL Standings (1 Previous + 2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable = 3).
Crew Chief Bob Davidson now has 2 points in the UEFL's Crew Division (1 Previous + 1 U = 2).

This is the 41st ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 14th player ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Prior to ejection, Norris' line was 7.2 IP, 5 H, 4 ER.
