MLB Ejection 086 - Tim Timmons (1; Edinson Volquez)

HP Umpire Tim Timmons ejected Royals P Edinson Volquez for arguing a time out call (Unsportsmanlike-NEC) in the top of the 3rd inning of the Cardinals-Royals game. With two out and none on, Cardinals batter Matt Adams requested and was granted time out as Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura prepared to deliver a 0-1 pitch. Replays do not indicate the timeliness of Adams' request and Volquez was ejected from the dugout after Adams' subsequently singled, the call was irrecusable.* At the time of the ejection, the Cardinals were leading, 3-2. The Cardinals ultimately won the contest, 8-4.

This is Tim Timmons (95)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Tim Timmons now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (2 Previous + 2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable = 4).
Crew Chief Mike Everitt now has 5 points in Crew Division (4 Previous + 1 Irrecusable Call = 5).

*Rule 5.04(b)(2) Comment states, in part, "Umpires will not call “Time” at the request of the batter or any member of his team once the pitcher has started his windup or has come to a set position even though the batter claims “dust in his eyes,” “steamed glasses,” “didn’t get the sign” or for any other cause."
