MLB Ejection & Replay Review: Knight, Estabrook (1, 12)

HP Umpire Brian Knight ejected Royals 3B Mike Moustakas for arguing an out call made by 2B Umpire Mike Estabrook that was overturned by Instant Replay Review in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Dodgers-Royals game. With one out and one on, Royals baserunner R1 Pedro Ciriaco attempted to steal second base off Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis and shortstop Miguel Rojas. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Royal Manager Ned Yost, Estabrook's ruling was reversed, the call was incorrect. Replays indicate Rojas did not tag Ciriaco prior to Ciriaco's contact of second base, the call was incorrect.* At the time of the review, the Dodgers were leading, 5-4. The Dodgers ultimately won the contest, 5-4.
