MLB Ejection 152 - Joe West (4; Terry Francona)

HP Umpire Joe West ejected Indians Manager Terry Francona for arguing a check swing (strike three) call by 3B Umpire Mark Ripperger in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Marlins-Indians game. With none out and two on (R1, R2), Indians batter Jason Kipnis attempted to check his swing on a 0-2 changeup from Marlins pitcher Fernando Rodney. Ruling was reviewed and affirmed by the UEFL Appeals Board (8-0-1), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Marlins were leading, 5-3. The Indians ultimately won the contest, 6-5.

This is Joe West (22)'s fourth ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Joe West now has 8 points in UEFL Standings (5 Previous + 2 MLB + 1 Correct Call-Crewmate = 8).
Crew Chief Joe West now has 7 points in Crew Division (6 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 7).

This is the 152nd ejection report of the 2016 regular season.
This is the 60th Manager ejection of 2016.
This is Cleveland's 6th ejection of 2016, T-3rd in the AL Central (DET 10; CWS 7; CLE, MIN 6; KC 5).
This is Terry Francona's 3rd ejection of 2016, 1st since August 3 (Fieldin Culbreth; QOC = N [Replay]).
This is Joe West's first ejection since July 26, 2016 (Angel Pagan; QOC = N [Balls/Strikes]).
