MLB Ejection 203: Chris Guccione (1; Jeff Banister)

3B Umpire Chris Guccione ejected Rangers Manager Jeff Banister for arguing a fair ball call in the top of the 2nd inning of the Mariners-Rangers game. With two out and two on, Mariners batter Ketel Marte hit a 0-2 fastball from Rangers pitcher Yovani Gallardo on the ground for a two-run double. Replays indicate the hit bounded down the third base foul line and appeared to pass over the edge of the base before continuing into left field, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Mariners were leading, 2-0. The Mariners ultimately won the contest, 3-1.

This is Chris Guccione (68)'s first ejection of 2015.
Chris Guccione now has 10 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 10).
Crew Chief Jeff Nelson now has 5 points in Crew Division (4 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 5).

This is the 203rd ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 97th Manager ejection of 2015.
This is the Rangers' 6th ejection of 2015, T-1st in the AL West (HOU, SEA, TEX 6; LAA 5; OAK 4).
