MLB Ejection 074: Brian Gorman (1; Buck Showalter)

HP Umpire Brian Gorman ejected Orioles Manager Buck Showalter for arguing strike calls in the top of the second inning of the Orioles-Astros game. With two out and none on, Orioles batter Ryan Flaherty took a 1-2 fastball from Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel for a called third strike. Replays indicate the preceding 1-1 pitch ruled strike two was located off the outer edge of home plate and belt-high (px -1.363, pz 2.568), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Orioles were leading, 1-0. The Orioles ultimately won the contest, 3-2.
