HP Umpire Tripp Gibson ejected Padres PH Will Venable and Manager Bud Black for arguing a check swing (strike three) call in the bottom of the 12th inning of the Giants-Padres game. With one out and none on, Venable attempted to check his swing on a 1-2 knuckle curve from Giants pitcher Santiago Casilla for a swinging third strike. Replays indicate Venable attempted to strike the pitch, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Giants were leading, 1-0. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 1-0, in 12 innings.
