MLB Ejection 039 - Paul Nauert (1; Jeff Banister)

HP Umpire Paul Nauert ejected Rangers Manager Jeff Banister (ball four call; QOCN) in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Rangers-White Sox game. With two out and the bases loaded, White Sox batter Nicky Delmonico took a 3-2 slider from Rangers pitcher Jose Leclerc for a called fourth ball after which subsequent batter Matt Davidson took a 3-2 slider for a called fourth ball; Banister was ejected arguing balls and strikes during a subsequent pitching change. *This ejection is eligible for a Balls/Strikes Exemption, if so challenged.* Replays indicate the 3-2 pitch to Delmonico was located over the heart of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -.016, pz 1.721 [sz_bot 1.601 / MOE 1.684]), the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 2-2. The White Sox ultimately won the contest, 4-2.

This is Paul Nauert (39)'s first ejection of 2018.
Paul Nauert now has -2 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = -2).
Crew Chief Angel Hernandez now has 3 points in Crew Division (3 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 3).
*This pitch was located 0.444 vertical inches from being deemed a correct call.
*UEFL Rule 6-5-d-2 states, in part, "Balls/Strikes ejections that occur during a pitching change, mound visit, or other pause in play, shall be judged on a case-by-case basis, as above, with a strong regard for Rule 6-5-c. The same exemption that may be made under Rule 6-5-d shall also apply to this provision."

This is the 39th ejection of the 2018 MLB regular season.
This is the 15th Manager ejection of 2018.
This is Texas' 1st ejection of 2018, T-1st in the AL West (HOU, LAA, SEA, TEX 1; OAK 0).
