MLB Ejections 167-168 - Toby Basner (3-4; Escobar, Yost)

HP Umpire Toby Basner ejected Royals SS Alcides Escobar and Manager Ned Yost for arguing a strike two call in the bottom of the 5th inning of the White Sox-Royals game. With two out and none on, Escobar took a 3-1 fastball from Royals pitcher Juan Minaya for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and knee high (px .612, pz 1.580 [sz_bot 1.570]) and that the strike one call was located over the outer edge of home plate and thigh high (px .730, pz 2.246), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Royals were leading, 6-2. The Royals ultimately won the contest, 8-3.

This is Toby Basner (99)'s third, fourth ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
