MLB Ejection 029 - CB Bucknor (1; Tim Cossins)

HP Umpire CB Bucknor ejected Orioles Field Coordinator Tim Cossins (ball one call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the Orioles-Rays game. With none out and none on, Rays batter Yandy Diaz took a 0-1 fastball from Orioles pitcher David Hess for a called first ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px 0.03, pz 1.45 [sz_bot 1.66]) and that all other callable pitches during the half-inning were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Rays were leading, 5-0. The Rays ultimately won the contest, 8-1.

This is CB Bucknor (54)'s first ejection of 2019.
CB Bucknor now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Fieldin Culbreth now has 2 points in Crew Division (1 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 2).
*This pitch was located 4.992 vertical inches from being deemed an incorrect call.
^This is the first known ejection of a Field Coordinator in MLB history.

This is the 29th ejection report of the 2019 MLB regular season.
This is Baltimore's 3rd ejection of 2019, 1st in the AL East (BAL 3; BOS, NYY, TB, TOR 0).
This is Tim Cossins' first career MLB ejection.
This is CB Bucknor's first ejection since May 5, 2018 (John Gibbons; QOC = N [Balls/Strikes]).
