MLB Ejection 098 - Ryan Blakney (1; AJ Hinch)

HP Umpire Ryan Blakney ejected Astros Manager AJ Hinch for arguing warnings/ejection no-call in the bottom of the 7th inning of the White Sox-Astros game. With two out and none on, Astros batter Evan Gattis took a 1-0 fastball from White Sox pitcher Jose Quintana for a called second ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and thrown behind Gattis after White Sox batter Jose Abreu was hit by a pitch the previous half-inning, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the White Sox were leading, 2-1. The White Sox ultimately won the contest, 4-1.
