MLB Ejections 135-136 - Lentz, Nauert (3, 3; DET-NYY)

HP Umpire Nic Lentz ejected Yankees Manager Aaron Boone (strike two call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 5th and 1B Umpire Paul Nauert ejected Tigers Manager Ron Gardenhire (check swing ball four) in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Tigers-Yankees game. In the 5th, with one out and none on, Yankees batter Gleyber Torres took a 0-0 curveball and 1-1 fastball from Tigers pitcher Jordan Zimmerman for called first and second strikes. Replays indicate the 0-0 pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px .327, pz 1.412 [sz_bot 1.560 / RAD 1.437 / MOE 1.354]) and the 1-1 pitch was located over the inner edge of home plate and thigh-high (px -.810, pz 1.877), the call was correct.* At the time of Boone's ejection, the Tigers were leading, 3-0.

In the 8th, with two out and two on (R1, R2), Yankees batter Luke Voit attempted to check his swing on a 3-2 slider from Tigers pitcher Joe Jimenez, ruled a ball and no swing on appeal by 1B Umpire Nauert. This ruling is under review by the UEFL Appeals Board. At the time of Gardenhire's ejection, the Tigers were leading, 5-4. The Yankees ultimately won the contest, 7-5.
