MLB Ejections 164-165 - Alfonso Marquez (3-4; DET)

HP Umpire Alfonso Marquez ejected Tigers DH Miguel Cabrera and Manager Ron Gardenhire (pace of play/batter's box rule; QOCU) in the top of the 5th inning of the #Tigers-#Astros game. With one out and none on in the top of the 5th inning, Cabrera flied out against Astros pitcher Wade Miley, having been instructed by Marquez to promptly enter the batter's box, as in Rule 5.04(b)(1), before being ejected one inning later for arguing that Astros batter Yordan Alvarez was purportedly not receiving a similar instruction, the call was irrecusable.* At the time of the ejections, the Astros were leading, 4-2. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 5-4.

These are Alfonso Marquez (72)'s third and fourth ejections of 2019.
Alfonso Marquez now has 8 points in the UEFL Standings (4 Prev + 2*[2 MLB + 0 QOCU] = 8).
Crew Chief Alfonso Marquez now has 7 points in Crew Division (5 Previous + 2 Irrecusable Call = 7).
*Official Baseball Rule 5.04(b)(1), the Batter's Box Rule, states: "The batter shall take his position in the batter’s box promptly when it is his time at bat."
