MLB Ejection 052 - Hunter Wendelstedt (1; Ron Gardenhire)

HP Umpire Hunter Wendelstedt ejected Tigers Manager Ron Gardenhire (ball four call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the Tigers-Twins game. With two out and two on (R1, R3), Twins batter Jake Cave took a 3-2 fastball from Tigers pitcher Spencer Turnbull for a called fourth ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and above the midpoint (px -0.42, pz 3.46 [sz_top 3.34]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Tigers were leading, 2-1. The Tigers ultimately won the contest, 5-3.
