MLB Ejections 040-047 - Scott & Iassogna (TOR-TEX Fight)

1B Umpire Dale Scott ejected Blue Jays First Base Coach Tim Leiper for arguing a balk non-call in the top of the 3rd, HP Umpire Dan Iassogna ejected Blue Jays Manager John Gibbons for arguing a ball one call in the bottom of the 3rd, 1B Umpire Scott ejected Blue Jays RF Jose Bautista and 3B Josh Donaldson, and Rangers 2B Rougned Odor and Bench Coach Steve Buechele for fighting in the top of the 8th inning, and HP Umpire Iassogna ejected Blue Jays P Jesse Chavez and Acting Manager/Bench Coach DeMarlo Hale for throwing at Rangers batter Prince Fielder in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Blue Jays-Rangers game. In the top of the 3rd with none out and one on (R1), Blue Jays batter Donaldson hit a 3-2 slider from Rangers pitcher Cesar Ramos to left field for a fly out. Replays indicate Ramos stayed true to his natural motion in delivering his pitches and did not commit a balk, the call was correct. In the bottom of the 3rd, with one out and one on, Rangers batter Odor took a 0-2 fastball from Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Sanchez for a called first ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner edge of home plate and thigh high (px 0.681, pz 1.977 [sz_bot 1.340 / MOE 1.423]), the call was incorrect. In the top of the 8th, with one out and one on, Blue Jays batter Justin Smoak hit a 2-0 fastball from Rangers pitcher Matt Bush on the ground to third baseman Adrian Beltre, who threw to second baseman Rougned Odor, who attempted to throw to first baseman Mitch Moreland as Blue Jays baserunner R1 Jose Bautista arrived at second base. Replays indicate Bautista's slide violated the bona fide slide rule concerning interference at second base, prompting a bench-clearing incident and an automatic double play, the call was irrecusable. In the bottom of the 8th, with none out and none on, Rangers batter Fielder took a first-pitch fastball for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and struck fielder on the backside, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the Leiper and Gibbons ejections, the Blue Jays were leading, 1-0. At the time of the Bautista, Donaldson, Odor, Buechele, Chavez, and Hale ejections, the Rangers were leading, 7-6. The Rangers ultimately won the contest, 7-6.
