MLB Ejection 158 - John Tumpane (1; Don Mattingly)

2B Umpire John Tumpane ejected Marlins Manager Don Mattingly (balk call; QOCN) in the top of the 5th inning of the #Braves-#Marlins game. With none out and two on (R1, R2), Marlins pitcher Caleb Smith was called for a balk prior to the 1-1 pitch during Julio Teheran's at-bat, advancing both runners. Replays indicate Smith appeared to call for another round of signs with his catcher and did not make a motion naturally associated with his motion to come set, the call was incorrect. Original Ruling was challenged and affirmed by the UEFL Appeals Board (5-1), the call was incorrectNote, we previously covered how Balk Rule 6.02(a)(1) and Set Position Rule 5.07(a)(2) interact in the following related post.* At the time of the ejection, the Braves were leading, 1-0. The Braves ultimately won the contest, 8-4.
