MLB Ejection & Replay Review: Bill Miller (4, 05)

HP Umpire Bill Miller ejected Rangers Manager Ron Washington for arguing a Replay Review decision that overturned Miller's Rule 7.13 violation no-call (out) in the bottom of the 1st inning of the Rangers-Angels game. With one out and one on, Angels batter Albert Pujols hit a 3-2 slider from Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish on a ground ball to center fielder Leonys Martin, who threw to pitcher Yu Darvish to catcher Chris Gimenez as Angels baserunner R1 Kole Calhoun slid into home plate. Upon Replay Review as the result of a request by Angels Manager Mike Scioscia and initiation by Crew Chief Bill Miller, Miller's ruling was reversed, the call was incorrect. Replays indicate Gimenez blocked Calhoun's access to home plate while not in possession of the baseball in a violation of Rule 7.13, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the game was tied, 0-0. At the time of the ejection, the Angels were leading, 1-0. The Angels ultimately won the contest, 5-2.
