MLB Ejection 159 - Marty Foster (3; Paul Molitor)

HP Umpire Marty Foster ejected Twins Manager Paul Molitor (check swing ball two call by 1B Umpire Mike Muchlinski) in the top of the 7th inning of the Royals-Twins game. With two out and two on (R1, R2), Royals batter Lorenzo Cain attempted to check his swing on a 1-2 curveball from Twins pitcher Alan Busenitz for a called second ball, appealed and affirmed as "no swing" by 1B Umpire Muchlinski. Play was reviewed and reversed by the UEFL Appeals Board (1-8), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Twins were leading, 4-3. The Royals ultimately won the contest, 5-4.
