MLB Ejection 027: John Tumpane (2; Bruce Bochy)

HP Umpire John Tumpane ejected Giants Manager Bruce Bochy for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 8th inning of the Giants-Rockies game. With two out and one on, Giants batter Brandon Crawford took a 1-2 slider from Rockies pitcher Boone Logan for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and at the height of the knee as it crossed the plate (px 0.247, pz 1.666 [sz_bot 1.560]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Rockies were leading, 6-4. The Rockies ultimately won the contest, 6-4.

This is John Tumpane (74)'s second ejection of 2015.
John Tumpane now has 8 points in the UEFL Standings (3 Previous + 3 AAA + 2 Correct Call = 8).
Crew Chief John Hirschbeck now has 5 points in the UEFL Standings (4 Previous + 1 Correct = 5).

This is the 27th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 10th Manager ejection of 2015.
This is the Giants' 1st ejection of 2015, 2nd in the NL West (SD 3; SF 1; ARI, COL, LAD 0).
