MLB Ejections 093-94 - Morales, Libka (MIL x2)

HP Umpire Gabe Morales ejected Brewers manager Craig Counsell (balls/strikes; QOCY) in the top of the 6th and 1B Umpire John Libka ejected Brewers LF Christian Yelich (out call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 6th inning of the #Reds-#Brewers game. In the top of the 6th, Reds batter Jonathan India was hit by a pitch, Jesse Winker singled, and Nick Castellanos hit a home run; Counsell was ejected during the ensuing pitching change in which Brent Suter replaced Freddy Peralta. Replays indicate of the five callable pitches in the half inning preceding ejection, HP Umpire Morales' officiated five correctly (5/5 = 100% accuracy), the call was correct.

In the bottom of the 6th, with none out and none on, Brewers batter Yelich bunted a first-pitch fastball from Reds pitcher Vladimir Gutierrez on the ground to Gutierrez, who threw wildly to first base. As Yelich stood down the right field line, Reds second baseman Jonathan India, who had retrieved the ball, tagged Yelich. Replays indicate Yelich, after overrunning first base, made a motion to indicate an attempt to run to second before stopping his motion and remaining down the right field line, the call was correct.* At the time of both ejections, the Reds were leading, 3-1. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 4-3.

This is Gabe Morales (47)'s 2nd ejection of 2021.
This is John Libka (84)'s 3rd ejection of 2021.
Gabe Morales now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
John Libka now has 12 points in the UEFL Standings (8 Prev + 2 AAA + 2 Correct Call = 12).
Crew Chief Doug Eddings now has 4 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 2 QOCY = 4).
*Official Baseball Rule 5.09(b)(11) declares a runner is out when the runner "fails to return at once to first base after overrunning or oversliding that base. If the runner attempts to run to second they are out when tagged."
