MLB Ejections 168-169 - Livensparger, Layne (CIN-NYM)

HP Umpire Shane Livensparger ejected Reds 2B Scooter Gennett (strike two and three calls; QOCY) in the top of the 7th and 1B Umpire Jerry Layne ejected Mets Manager Terry Collins (Replay Review decision overturning HP Umpire Livensparger's out call at home plate to "safe"; QOCY) in the top of the 8th inning of the Reds-Mets game. In the 7th, with two out and one on, Gennett took 2-1 and 2-2 sinkers from Mets pitcher Jerry Blevins for called second and third strikes. Replays indicate the 2-1 pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and waist-high (px -.772, pz 2.591) and the 2-2 pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and thigh-high (px -.557, pz 1.863 [sz_bot 1.504]), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 5-5.

In the 8th, with one out and two on (R1, R2), Reds batter Tucker Barnhart hit a 0-1 sinker from Mets pitcher Jeurys Familia on a line drive to center fielder Juan Lagares, who threw to shortstop Amed Rosario, on to catcher Travis d'Arnaud as Reds baserunner R1 Scott Schebler arrived at home plate, ruled out by HP Umpire Livensparger. Upon Replay Review as the result of a Manager's Challenge by Reds Manager Bryan Price, Livensparger's call was overturned to "safe" as replays indicate d'Arnaud failed to tag Schebler prior to his touch of home plate, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Reds were leading, 7-5. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 10-5.
