MLB Ejections 140-141 - Alan Porter (3-4; MIN x2)

HP Umpire Alan Porter ejected Twins pitcher Matt Belisle (throwing at Rangers batter Adrian Beltre) in the bottom of the 6th and P Addison Reed (arguing Belisle's ejection/Unsportsmanlike-NEC; QOCU) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Twins-Rangers game. In the 6th, with one out and one on, Rangers batter Nomar Mazara hit a two-run home run off Twins pitcher Tyler Duffey, resulting in a pitching change upon which Belisle entered the game. Beltre, the first batter Belisle faced, took a 1-1 fastball for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and struck Beltre in the upper left arm, the call was irrecusable.
