MLB Ejection 056 - Joe West (2; John Gibbons)

1B Umpire Joe West ejected Blue Jays Manager John Gibbons for arguing warnings/ejection no-call by HP Umpire Mark Ripperger in the top of the 5th inning  of the Blue Jays-Twins game. With none out and none on, Blue Jays batter Josh Donaldson took two consecutive fastballs from Twins pitcher Phil Hughes for called first and second balls. Replays indicate both pitches were located inside and belt high, including a pitch caught behind Donaldson's back (Pitch #1: px -2.808, pz 3.009; Pitch #2: px -3.88, pz 3.142), the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Blue Jays were leading, 3-1. The Blue Jays ultimately won the contest, 3-1.

This is Joe West (22)'s second ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Joe West now has 6 points in the UEFL Standings (4 Previous + 2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable Call-C = 6).
Crew Chief Joe West now has 5 points in Crew Division (4 Previous + 1 Irrecusable Call-Crewmate = 5).
