MLB Ejection 031: Sean Barber (1; Lloyd McClendon)

HP Umpire Sean Barber ejected Mariners Manager Lloyd McClendon for Unsportsmanlike-NEC in the top of the 4th inning of the Twins-Mariners game. With none out and one on, Twins batter Chris Herrmann took a 1-1 curveball from Mariners pitcher Roenis Elias for a called second strike. Replays indicate all pitches during the inning were correctly officiated and the call immediately preceding ejection benefitted McClendon's team; thus, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Twins were leading, 2-0. The Twins ultimately won the contest, 4-2, in 11 innings.

This is Sean Barber (29)'s first ejection of 2015.
Sean Barber now has 3 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 3 AAA + 0 Irrecusable Call = 3).
Crew Chief Ted Barrett now has 2 points in Crew Division (1 Previous + 1 Irrecusable = 2).

This is the 31st ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 13th Manager ejection of 2015.
This is the Mariners' 1st ejection of 2015, T-1st in the AL West (HOU, LAA, OAK, SEA 1; TEX 0).
This is Lloyd McClendon's first ejection since March 31, 2015 (Alan Porter; QOC = U [Warnings]).
This is Sean Barber's first ejection since May 16, 2014 (Mike Matheny; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
