MLB Ejection 049: Tripp Gibson (3; Brad Ausmus)

HP Umpire Tripp Gibson ejected Tigers Manager Brad Ausmus for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Brewers-Tigers game. With one out and one on, Tigers batter Ian Kinsler took a 0-2 sinker from Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -.652, pz 1.494 [sz_bot 1.46]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Brewers were leading, 7-1. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 8-1.

This is Tripp Gibson (73)'s third ejection of 2015.
Tripp Gibson now has 12 points in the UEFL Standings (8 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 12).
Crew Chief Brian Gorman now has 9 points in Crew Division (8 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 9).

This is the 49th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 22nd Manager ejection of 2015.
This is the Tigers' 2nd ejection of 2015, 3rd in the AL Central (KC 9; CWS 3; DET 2; CLE 1; MIN 0).
