MLB Ejection 128: Manny Gonzalez (2; Ian Kinsler)

HP Umpire Manny Gonzalez ejected Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler for arguing a strike one call in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the Orioles-Tigers game. With one out and two on, Kinsler took a 2-0 fastball from Orioles pitcher Miguel Gonzalez for a called first strike before flying out on the subsequent 2-1 pitch. Replays indicate the 2-0 pitch was located over the inner edge of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px -.776, pz 1.349 [sz_bot 1.460 / MOE 1.377]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Orioles were leading, 1-0. The Orioles ultimately won the contest, 9-3.

This is Manny Gonzalez (79)'s second ejection of 2015.
Manny Gonzalez now has -4 points in the UEFL Standings (5 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect = 3).
Crew Chief Fieldin Culbreth now has 5 points in Crew Division (5 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 5).
