MLB Ejection 111: Ron Kulpa (1; Terry Francona)

HP Umpire Ron Kulpa ejected Indians Manager Terry Francona for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 9th inning of the Indians-Orioles game. With one out and two on, Indians batter Ryan Raburn took a 2-2 fastball from Orioles pitcher TJ McFarland for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and knee high (px -.506, pz 1.544 [sz_bot 1.520]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Orioles were leading, 8-0. The Orioles ultimately won the contest, 8-0.
