> Tiebreaker 1: Whichever game's scheduled first pitch occurred first.
> Tiebreaker 2: Whichever ejection occurred during an earlier half inning of the respective game.
> Tiebreaker 3: Whichever ejection occurred with fewer outs during said half inning.
> Tiebreaker 4: Whichever ejection occurred during an earlier at-bat (e.g., batter 1 vs 2 of the inning).
> Tiebreaker 5: Whichever umpire or team person, as applicable, has fewer seasonal games ("G").
