MLB Ejections 110-111, Replays 645-646: MIL-TOR
In the 8th, with one out and none on, Blue Jays batter Steve Tolleson was hit by a pitch while attempting to check his swing on a 1-1 slider from Brewers pitcher Will Smith. Replays indicate Tolleson did not attempt to strike the pitch, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 4-4.
During the subsequent at-bat, Tolleson attempted to steal second base off of Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado, who threw to shortstop Segura as Tolleson slid into second base. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Brewers Acting Manager Jerry Narron, Wolcott's ruling was reversed, the call was incorrect. Replays indicate the runner was tagged while off his base, the call was correct. At the time of the review and ejection, the game was tied, 4-4. The Blue Jays ultimately won the contest, 7-4.
