MLB Replay Review & Ejections: Gibson, Miller (05, 1-2)

2B Umpire Bill Miller ejected Reds Manager Bryan Price and P Homer Bailey for arguing a Replay Review decision that upheld 1B Umpire Greg Gibson's safe call in the bottom of the 1st inning of the Reds-Braves game. With two out and one on, Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto attempted to pick off Braves baserunner R1 B.J. Upton, throw to Reds first baseman Joey Votto, who tagged Upton as Upton slid into first base. Upon Instant Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Reds Manager Bryan Price, Gibson's ruling that Votto did not tag Upton while he was off his base was affirmed, the call was correct. Price was subsequently ejected by U2 Miller for arguing the Replay Review while Bailey was ejected for continued protest from the dugout (Unsportsmanlike-NEC). At the time of the review and ejections, the contest was tied, 0-0. The Braves ultimately won the contest, 1-0, in 10 innings.
