Olympic Q Ejection - Edwin Hernandez (Mike Scioscia)

HP Umpire Edwin Hernandez ejected Team USA manager Mike Scioscia (Replay Review that upheld 3B Umpire Wilfredo Montoya's foul ball [not HR] call) in the bottom of the 6th inning of the WBSC Olympic Baseball Qualifier game between Dominican Republic and United States of America. With two out and two on, USA batter Todd Frazier hit a 1-2 pitch from Dominican Republic pitcher Román Méndez on a fly ball down the left field line and toward the foul pole, ruled a foul ball by 3B Umpire Wilfredo Montoya. After a crew consultation and upon Replay Review, the foul ball call was upheld, resulting in Scioscia's ejection for arguing a Replay Review decision.* At the time of the ejection, Team USA was leading 8-5. Team USA ultimately won the contest, 8-6.

*Baseballs Standards for Removal from the Game states a person shall be ejected for, amongst others, "arguing after a Replay Review."
