MLB Ejection 112 - Angel Hernandez (2; Brian Snitker)

1B Umpire Angel Hernandez ejected Braves Interim Manager Brian Snitker for arguing a balk no-call in the top of the 10th inning of the Braves-Reds game. With one out and one on (R1), Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani attempted to pick off Braves baserunner R1 Adonis Garcia at first base. Replays indicate Cingrani's move to first base did not appear to contain a requisite natural motion associated with his pitch delivery, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 4-4. The Braves ultimately won the contest, 5-4, in 11 innings.

This is Angel Hernandez (55)'s second ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Angel Hernandez now has 3 points in the UEFL Standings (-1 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 3).
Crew Chief Ted Barrett now has 3 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 3).
*Rule 5.07(a)(2): "After assuming Set Position, any natural motion associated with his delivery of the ball to the batter commits [the pitcher] to the pitch without alteration or interruption."
*Rule 6.02(a)(1): "If there is a runner, or runners, it is a balk when: The pitcher, while touching his plate, makes any motion naturally associated with his pitch and fails to make such delivery."
