MLB Ejection 059 - Brian Knight (2; Chris Sale)

HP Umpire Brian Knight ejected Red Sox P Chris Sale (balls/strikes; QOCY) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Red Sox-Orioles game. With none out and none on, Orioles batters Mark Trumbo and Craig Gentry walked in consecutive at-bats.

At the time of the ejection, the Red Sox were leading, 5-0. The Red Sox ultimately won the contest, 5-1.
