MLB Ejection 107 - Mark Ripperger (1; Ron Gardenhire)

HP Umpire Mark Ripperger ejected Tigers Manager Ron Gardenhire (ball two call; QOCY) in the top of the 4th inning of the Nationals-Tigers game. With two out and one on (R3), Nationals batter Brian Dozier took a 1-2 slider from Tigers pitcher Gregory Soto for called second ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and at the midpoint (px 0.83, pz 2.82 [sz_top 2.86]) and that all pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Nationals were leading, 2-0. The Tigers ultimately won the contest, 7-5.

This is Mark Ripperger (90)'s first ejection of 2019.
Mark Ripperger now has 3 points in the UEFL Standings (-1 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 3).
