MLB Ejection 137 - Lance Barksdale (2; John Gibbons)

HP Umpire Lance Barksdale ejected Blue Jays Manager John Gibbons (ball three call; QOCY) in the top of the 7th inning of the Rays-Blue Jays game. With one out and the bases loaded, Rays batter Steven Souza Jr took a 2-2 fastball from Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Loup for a called third ball before walking on the ensuing pitch. Replays indicate the 2-2 pitch was located off the edge of home plate and thigh-high (px -.971, pz 2.076; the pitch was centered over three inches off the plate) and that all pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Blue Jays were leading, 3-2. The Blue Jays ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

This is Lance Barksdale (23)'s second ejection of the 2017 MLB regular season.
Lance Barksdale now has 2 points in the UEFL Standings (-2 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 2).
Crew Chief Dan Iassogna now has 3 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 1 Call = 3).
