WBC Ejection - DJ Reyburn (Sheng Hsiung Huang)

WBC Ejection: DJ Reyburn ejected Chinese Taipei P Sheng Hsiung Huang for throwing at Korea batter Dae-Ho Lee in the top of the 6th inning of the Korea-Taipei game. With one out and none on, Lee took a 2-2 pitch from Huang for a hit-by-pitch, Lee's second HBP of the game and the fifth overall HBP of the game. Warnings had previously been issued, the call was irrecusable.* At the time of the ejection, Korea was leading, 8-5. Korea ultimately won the contest, 11-8. Both teams had previously been eliminated from the World Baseball Classic.

*With warnings previously issued, it logically would follow that Manager Kuo Tai-yuan was also ejected, but the box score makes reference to Pitching Coach Chin-Chih Huang instead of pitcher Sheng Hsiung Huang.

This is DJ Reyburn (70)'s first ejection of the 2017 World Baseball Classic.
This is the 1st ejection of the 2017 World Baseball Classic.
