MLB Ejection 028 - Tripp Gibson (1; Curt Young)

HP Umpire Tripp Gibson ejected Giants Pitching Coach Curt Young (balls/strikes; QOCN) in the top of the 3rd inning of the Dodgers-Giants game. With two out and one on (R2), Dodgers batter Chase Utley took a 0-2 fastball from Giants pitcher Roberto Gomez for a called first ball, and 1-2 slider for a called second ball, after which Dodgers batter Corey Seager took a 0-0 changeup from Gomez for a called first ball. Replays indicate the 0-2 pitch to Utley was located off the outer edge of home plate and above the midpoint (px -1.788, pz 3.766), the 1-2 pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and thigh-high (px -.486, pz 2.296), and the first pitch to Seager was located over the outer half of home plate and below the midpoint (px -.524, pz 1.428 [sz_bot 1.627 / MOE 1.544]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Dodgers were leading, 8-2. The Dodgers ultimately won the contest, 15-6.
