MLB Ejection 048 - Mike Winters (1; John Gibbons)

HP Umpire Mike Winters ejected Blue Jays Manager John Gibbons for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 4th inning of the Rays-Blue Jays game. With one out and none on, Blue Jays batter Troy Tulowitzki took a 3-2 fastball from Rays pitcher Drew Smyly for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -.237, pz 1.603 [sz_bot 1.62 / MOE 1.537]), and that all other callable pitches in the at bat were properly officiated, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Rays were leading, 11-0. The Rays ultimately won the contest, 13-2.

This is Mike Winters (33)'s 1st ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Mike Winters now has 5 points in the UEFL Standings (1 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 5).
