MLB Ejection 036 - Carlos Torres (1; Ron Gardenhire)

HP Umpire Carlos Torres ejected Tigers Manager Ron Gardenhire (strike two call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Mariners-Tigers game.

Replays indicate the 0-0 pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and above the hollow of the knee (px .724, pz 1.807 [sz_bot 1.601]) while the 0-1 pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and thigh high (px .893, pz 2.018) and that all prior callable pitches in the inning were properly officiated (6/6 = 100% accuracy), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Mariners were leading, 6-2. The Mariners ultimately won the contest, 9-5.
