MLB Ejections 58-59 - Will Little (3-4; MIN)

HP Umpire Will Little ejected Twins DH Nelson Cruz and Manager Rocco Baldelli (strike three call; QOCN) in the top of the 7th inning of the #Twins-#WhiteSox game. With two out and one on, Twins batter Ryan Jeffers took a 1-2 sinker from White Sox pitcher Dane Dunning for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px 0.08, pz 1.36 [sz_bot 1.63 / RAD 1.51 / MOE 1.43]), the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejections, the White Sox were leading, 5-2. The White Sox ultimately won the contest, 6-2.
