MLB Ejections 119-120 - John Tumpane (4-5; KC x2)

HP Umpire John Tumpane ejected Royals DH Mike Moustakas and Manager Ned Yost (strike three call; QOCY) in the top of the 9th inning of the Royals-Orioles game. With one out and none on, Moustakas took a 2-2 slider from Orioles pitcher Darren O'Day for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -.912, pz 1.526 [sz_bot 1.601 / MOE 1.518]), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejections, the Orioles were leading, 6-0. The Orioles ultimately won the contest, 6-0.
