MLB Ejection 101 - Tim Timmons (2; Miguel Cabrera)

1B Umpire Tim Timmons ejected Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera for arguing a foul ball no-call by HP Umpire Jordan Baker in the top of the 6th inning of the Tigers-Indians game. With one out and one on, Cabrera hit a 3-1 fastball from Indians pitcher DJ Carrasco on the ground to third baseman Jose Ramirez, who threw to second baseman Jason Kipnis to first baseman Mike Napoli while Cabrera did not leave the batter's box. Replays indicate that after hitting Cabrera's bat, the baseball appeared to strike Cabrera's shin before caroming into fair territory and toward Ramirez, the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Indians were leading, 7-0.

This is Tim Timmons (95)'s second ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Tim Timmons now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (4 Previous + 2 MLB - 2 QOCN-Crewmate = 4).
Crew Chief Mike Everitt now has 6 points in Crew Division (6 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 6).

This is the 101st ejection report of the 2016 regular season.
This is the 49th player ejection of 2016. Prior to ejection, Cabrera was 0-3 (SO) in the contest.
This is Detroit's 5th ejection of 2016, T-2nd in the AL Central (CWS 6; DET, MIN 5; KC 4; CLE 1).
