MLB Ejection & Replay Review: Wolcott, Gibson (2, 08)

HP Umpire Quinn Wolcott ejected Red Sox C A.J. Pierzynski for arguing a ball call in the bottom of the 6th and Instant Replay Review overturned 1B Umpire Greg Gibson's safe call in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Red Sox-Indians game. In the 5th, with one out and one on, Indians batter Mike Aviles hit a 1-0 cutter from Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman on the ground to shortstop Stephen Drew, who threw to first baseman Brock Holt as Aviles arrived at first base. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Red Sox Manager John Farrell, Gibson's ruling was reversed, the call was incorrect. At the time of the review, the Indains were leading, 1-0.

In the 6th, with none out and none on, Indians batter Asdrubal Cabrera took four consecutive pitches from Workman for balls. Replays indicate all pitches were properly officiated, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Red Sox were leading, 2-1. The Indians ultimately won the contest, 7-4, in 12 innings.
