MLB Ejection 136: Toby Basner (2; Mike Napoli)

HP Umpire Toby Basner ejected Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 1st inning of the White Sox-Red Sox game. With two out and none on, Napoli took a 0-2 fastball from White Sox pitcher John Danks for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and thigh high (px -.338, pz 1.992 [sz_bot 1.460]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the White Sox were leading, 4-2. The White Sox ultimately won the contest, 10-8.

This is Toby Basner (99)'s second ejection of 2015.
Toby Basner now has 8 points in the UEFL Standings (3 Previous + 3 AAA + 2 Correct Call = 8).
Crew Chief Bill Miller now has 4 points in Crew Division (3 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 4).

This is the 136th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 64th player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Napoli was 0-1 (SO) in the contest.
This is the Red Sox's 8th ejection of 2015, 1st in the AL East (BOS 8; TOR 6; BAL, NYY 4; TB 3).
This is Mike Napoli's 3rd ejection of 2015, 1st since June 28 (Tripp Gibson; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
This is Toby Basner's first ejection since May 28, 2015 (Manny Machado; QOC = Y [Check Swing]).
