MLB Ejection 159 - Mark Carlson (2; Kevin Cash)

HP Umpire Mark Carlson ejected Rays Manager Kevin Cash (balk call by 3B Umpire Carlos Torres; QOCY) in the top of the 8th inning of the Indians-Rays game. With one out and one on (R1), Rays pitcher Vidal Nuno committed a balk, resulting in an award to baserunner R1 Michael Brantley of second base. Replays indicate Nuno failed to complete delivery after beginning his motion to pitch in an illegal throw and (non-)step to first base, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Indians were leading, 2-0. The Indians ultimately won the contest, 2-0.

This is Mark Carlson (6)'s second ejection of 2018.
Mark Carlson now has 1 point in the UEFL Standings (-2 Prev + 2 MLB + 1 Correct-Crewmate = 1).
Crew Chief Paul Nauert now has 3 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 3).
*OBR 6.02(a)(1) states that it is a balk when—"The pitcher, while touching his plate, makes any motion naturally associated with his pitch and fails to make such delivery."
*OBR 6.02(a)(3) states that it is a balk when—"The pitcher, while touching his plate, fails to step directly toward a base before throwing to that base."

This is the 159th ejection report of the 2018 MLB regular season.
This is the 64th Manager ejection of 2018.
This is Tampa Bay's 2nd ejection of 2018, 5th in the AL East (NYY 9; TOR 8; BOS 5; BAL 3; TB 2).
