MLB Ejections 178-179 - Joe West (3-4; TOR x2)

3B Umpire Joe West ejected Blue Jays pitcher Ryan Borucki and pitching coach Pete Walker (throwing at Rays batter Kevin Kiermaier) in the bottom of the 8th inning of the #BlueJays-#Rays game. With none out and none on, Rays batter Kiermaier took a first-pitch sinker from Borucki for a hit-by-pitch, resulting in a crew consultation and ejection for intentionally pitching at the batter. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and struck Kiermaier in the mid-back, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejections, the Rays were leading, 7-1. The Rays ultimately won the contest, 7-1.
