MLB Ejection 011 - Jordan Baker (1; Alex Cora)

HP Umpire Jordan Baker ejected Red Sox Manager Alex Cora (foul ball call; QOCN) in the bottom of the 8th inning of the #RedSox-#Twins game. With one out and two on, Twins batter Ryan Jeffers attempted to strike a 1-2 changeup from Red Sox pitcher Matt Andriese, ruled a foul ball by Baker.

At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 3-3. The Twins ultimately won the contest, 4-3.
