MLB Ejection 023 - Chris Guccione (1; Joe Girardi)

3B Umpire Chris Guccione ejected Yankees Manager Joe Girardi for arguing a balk no-call in the top of the 4th inning of the Yankees-Orioles game. With two out and a runner on third, Orioles pitcher Kevin Gausman delivered from Set Position to Yankees batter Carlos Beltran. Replays indicate Gausman stayed true to his natural pitching motion, the call was correct.* Original Ruling Appealed and Affirmed by UEFL Appeals Board (Balk/QOC: Correct). At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Orioles ultimately won the contest, 1-0, in 10 innings.

This is Chris Guccione (68)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Chris Guccione now has 3 points in the UEFL Standings (-1 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 QOCY = 3).
Crew Chief Larry Vanover now has 2 points in Crew Division (1 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 2).
*OBR Rule 6.02(a)(13) states it is a balk when, "The pitcher delivers the pitch from Set Position without coming to a stop."

This is the 23rd ejection report of the 2016 MLB regular season.
This is the 11th Manager ejection of 2016.
This is the Yankees' 1st ejection of 2016, T-1st in the AL East (BAL, NYY, TB, TOR 1; BOS 0).
This is Joe Girardi's first ejection since September 20, 2015 (John Hirschbeck; QOC = U [DiMuro]).
This is Chris Guccione's first ejection since Sept 18, 2015 (Jeff Banister; QOC = Y [Fair/Foul]).
