MLB Ejection 033 - Todd Tichenor (1; Ron Gardenhire)

HP Umpire Todd Tichenor ejected Tigers Manager Ron Gardenhire (ball four call; QOCY) in the top of the 5th inning of the White Sox-Tigers game. With two out and the bases loaded, White Sox batter Yoan Moncada took a 3-1 curveball from Tigers pitcher Jordan Zimmermann for a called fourth ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the inner edge of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px 0.95, pz 1.67 [sz_bot 1.60]) and that all other balls during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the White Sox were leading, 2-1. The White Sox ultimately won the contest, 7-3.

This is Todd Tichenor (13)'s first ejection of 2019.
Todd Tichenor now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
