Ejections: D.J. Reyburn (1)

HP Umpire D.J. Reyburn ejected Diamondbacks Manager Kirk Gibson for arguing a balk call in the bottom of the 4th inning of the Diamondbacks-Astros game. With one out and two on, Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter was called for a balk; Astros R3 Jeff Keppinger scored and R1 Hunter Pence was awarded second base. Replays indicate Collmenter failed to properly step directly toward a base with his non-pivot foot while in contact with the rubber, under MLB Rule 8.05(c), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 1-0. The Diamondbacks ultimately won the contest, 4-2.

This is D.J. Reyburn's (70)'s first ejection of 2011.
D.J. Reyburn now has 5 points in the Umpire Ejection Fantasy League (0 Previous + 3 AAA + 2 Correct Call = 5).
D.J. Reyburn was not drafted in 2011.

This is the 55th ejection of 2011.
This is the 31st Manager ejection of 2011.
This is Kirk Gibson's second ejection of 2011.

That was an uneventful ejection, haha! Especially compared to when Davidson ejected Gibson.

He started towards home plate and then just stopped.

Great call. Same call Angel Hernandez had on Wakefield a couple of weeks ago.
