MLB Ejection 135: Jeff Nelson (1; Paul Molitor)

HP Umpire Jeff Nelson ejected Twins Manager Paul Molitor for arguing a strike three (check swing) call in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Yankees-Twins game. With two out and three on, Twins batter Aaron Hicks attempted to check his swing on a 3-2 slider from Yankees pitcher Adam Warren for a swinging third strike.
