MLB Ejection 070 - Joe West (1; Jeff Banister)

3B Umpire Joe West ejected Rangers Manager Jeff Banister (HBP call by HP Umpire Hunter Wendelstedt; QOCY) in the top of the 2nd inning of the Mariners-Rangers game. With one out and none on, Mariners batter Tyler Smith took a 2-1 fastball from Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate the pitched ball made contact with Smith's left hand (batting glove) and that Banister declined to use his Manger's Challenge in order to effect Replay Review, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Mariners were leading, 4-0. The Mariners ultimately won the contest, 7-3.
