MLB Ejection 133 - Tripp Gibson (3; Jeff Banister)

1B Umpire Tripp Gibson ejected Rangers Manager Jeff Banister (Warnings; QOCU) in the top of the 5th inning of the Astros-Rangers game. With none out and none on, Astros batter Marwin Gonzalez took four consecutive balls from Rangers pitcher Andrew Cashner, the last resulting in a hit-by-pitch and warnings from HP Umpire Stu Scheurwater as both Banister and Astros Manager AJ Hinch argued for opposite rulings (Banister disputed the warnings and Hinch campaigned for Cashner's ejection). Replays indicate the second, third, and fourth pitches to Gonzalez were thrown progressively farther off the inner edge of home plate until the fourth pitch hit Gonzalez in the uniform shirt, the call was irrecusable (see Standards for Removal from the Game, highlighted below).* At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 1-0. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 2-1.

This is Tripp Gibson (73)'s third ejection of the 2017 MLB regular season.
Tripp Gibson now has 6 points in the UEFL Standings (4 Prev + 2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable Call = 6).
Crew Chief Bill Welke now has 2 points in Crew Division (1 Previous + 1 Irrecusable Call = 2).
*Standard for Removal (MLBUM): "If a manager, coach or player leaves the dugout or his position to dispute a warning, he should be warned to stop. If he continues, he is subject to ejection."
