MLB Ejection & Replay Review: Hoberg, DiMuro (1, 06)

HP Umpire Pat Hoberg ejected Rangers SS Elvis Andrus for arguing a strike two call in the top of the 6th and Instant Replay Review confirmed 2B Umpire Mike DiMuro's safe call in the top of the 7th inning of the Rangers-Twins game. In the 6th, with one out and none on, Andrus took a 3-1 fastball from Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson for a called second strike, before grounding out on the next pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px -.055, pz 1.385 / sz_bot 1.62), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the contest was tied, 0-0.

In the 7th, with one out and one on, Rangers baserunner R1 Leonys Martin attempted to steal second base off Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Twins Manager Ron Gardenhire, DiMuro's ruling was affirmed, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the contest was tied, 0-0. The Rangers ultimately won the contest, 1-0.
