MLB Ejection 001 - Jordan Baker (1; Brian Snitker)

3B Umpire Jordan Baker ejected Braves Manager Brian Snitker (check swing call) in the top of the 9th inning of the Phillies-Braves game. With one out and none on, Phillies batter Cesar Hernandez attempted to check his swing on a 1-2 slider from Braves pitcher Arodys Vizcaino, ruled a ball by HP Umpire Jerry Layne and affirmed as "no swing" on appeal by 3B Umpire Baker. Play reviewed and adjudicated by the UEFL Appeals Board (6-2-1), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 5-5. The Braves ultimately won the contest, 8-5.
