MLB Ejections 020|021 - Scott Barry (1-2; Pressly, Molitor)

HP Umpire Scott Barry ejected Twins P Ryan Pressly and Manager Paul Molitor for arguing balls and strikes in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Twins-Astros game. With two out and none on, Pressly walked two batters before surrendering a double; prior to this, he struck out two batters on called third strikes. Replays indicate of the 13 Pressly pitches ruled ball during the inning, 11 were properly officiated while all six called strikes were properly officiated (17/19 = 89% accuracy). Pursuant to UEFL Rule 6-5-d-2 regarding pitching change ejections and the Balls/Strikes Exemption, the call was correct. At the time of the ejections, the Astros were leading, 16-4. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 16-4.
