MLB Ejections 063-64 - John Tumpane (3-4; KC x2)

HP Umpire John Tumpane ejected Royals DH Mike Moustakas (Upheld Replay Review out call at home plate; QOCY) in the bottom of the 3rd and Royals bench player/pitcher Danny Duffy (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Astros-Royals game. In the 3rd, with one out and one on (R2), Royals batter Salvador Perez hit a line drive to Astros left fielder Marwin Gonzalez, who threw to catcher Brian McCann as Royals baserunner R2 Moustakas arrived at home plate, resulting in an out call by HP Umpire Tumpane and Manager's Challenge by Royals Manager Ned Yost, which affirmed HP Umpire Tumpane's out call. Replays do not conclusively indicate that Moustakas' hands touched home plate prior to the tag, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 2-2.

In the 5th, with two out and none on, Royals batter Perez took a 3-2 knuckle curve from Astros pitcher Lance McCullers for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and waist-high (px .004, pz 2.986), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Royals were leading, 4-3. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 7-4.
