MLB Ejection 045: Lance Barksdale (1; Lloyd McClendon)

1B Umpire Lance Barksdale ejected Mariners Manager Lloyd McClendon for arguing a check swing (strike three) call in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Rays-Mariners game. With one out and one on, Mariners batter John Buck attempted to check his swing on a 3-2 splitter from Rays pitcher Joel Peralta. Replays indicate Buck attempted to strike the decisive pitch, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Rays were leading, 2-0. The Rays ultimately won the contest, 2-0.

This is Lance Barksdale (23)'s first ejection of the 2014 season.
