MLB Ejection P1 - Manny Gonzalez (2; Eddie Rosario)

HP Umpire Manny Gonzalez ejected Twins LF Eddie Rosario (strike two call; QOCN) in the bottom of the 6th inning of the #Astros-#Twins game. With none out and none on, Rosario took a 3-1 fastball from Astros pitcher Cristian Javier for a called second strike before striking out swinging on a subsequent foul tip. Replays indicate the 3-1 pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and above the midpoint (px 0.40, pz 3.37 [sz_top 3.05 / RAD 3.17 / MOE 3.24]) (px -0.4, pz 3.37 [sz_top 3.15 / RAD 3.27 / MOE 3.34]), the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 3-1, eliminating the Twins from the 2020 postseason.

This is Manny Gonzalez (79)'s second ejection of 2020.
