*Rule 7.09(e) [OBR 2015 Rule 6.01(a)(5)] states that is interference when: "Any batter or runner who has just been put out, or any runner who has just scored, hinders or impedes any following play being made on a runner. Such runner shall be declared out for the interference of his teammate." Rule 6.06(c) [OBR 2015 Rule 6.03(a)(3)] specifies that a batter may be guilty of interfering with the catcher's fielding or throwing by "stepping out of the batter's box." Rule 7.09(e) takes precedence over 6.06(c) in enforcement because Cabrera was out on the third strike, though the interpretation for interference by stepping out of the batter's box applies to both rules.
This is the 95th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
