MLB Ejection 059 - Todd Tichenor (2; Clint Hurdle)

HP Umpire Todd Tichenor ejected Pirates Manager Clint Hurdle (Replay Review decision that upheld 1B Umpire Tom Hallion's out call; QOCN-c) in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Rockies-Pirates game. With one out and none on, Pirates batter Jake Elmore hit a 3-1 fastball from Rockies pitcher German Marquez on the ground to Marquez, who attempted to tag Elmore as he ran toward first base, ruled an out by 1B Umpire Hallion and upheld via Replay Review as the result of a Pirates Challenge by Manager Hurdle. Replays indicate that while possessing the ball in his glove, Marquez touched Elmore with his bare hand while failing to tag him with the glove, the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Rockies were leading, 5-0. The Rockies ultimately won the contest, 5-0.
