MLB Ejection 032: Manny Gonzalez (1; Jeff Banister)

HP Umpire Manny Gonzalez ejected Rangers Manager Jeff Banister for arguing a Replay Review decision that overturned 1B Umpire Jim Reynolds' foul ball (no fan interference) call in the top of the 8th inning of the Rangers-Angels game. With none out and none on, Rangers batter Elvis Andrus hit a 2-2 fastball from Angels pitcher Mike Morin on a fly ball down the right field line and near the seating area, where the baseball ended up in the stands after Angels RF Kole Calhoun unsuccessfully attempted to make a catch. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Angels Manager Mike Scioscia, U1 Reynolds' ruling was overturned and Andrus was declared out on fan interference, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 2-2. The Rangers ultimately won the contest, 5-4, in 11 innings.

This is Manny Gonzalez (79)'s first ejection of 2015.
Manny Gonzalez now has 2 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable = 2).
Crew Chief Jim Reynolds now has 1 point in Crew Division (0 Previous + 1 Irrecusable Call = 1).

This is the 32nd ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 14th Manager ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Kemp was 2-4 in the contest.
This is the Rangers' 1st ejection of 2015, T-1st in the AL West (HOU, LAA, OAK, SEA , TEX 1).
This is Jeff Banister's first career MLB ejection.
This is Manny Gonzalez's first ejection since May 30, 2013 (Jhonny Peralta; QOC = N [Balls/Strikes]).
