MLB Ejections 160-161 - Roberto Ortiz (1-2; TOR x2)

HP Umpire Roberto Ortiz ejected Blue Jays bench player Luke Maile and Manager John Gibbons (ball one call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 2nd inning of the Blue Jays-Yankees game. With none out and two on, Yankees batter Gleyber Torres took a 0-0 fastball from Blue Jays pitcher Sean Reid-Foley for a called first ball.

The Blue Jays ultimately won the contest, 8-7.
