MLB Ejection 090 - David Rackley (2; Tony La Russa)

HP Umpire David Rackley ejected White Sox manager Tony La Russa (ball two call; QOCY) in the top of the 10th inning of the #Twins-#WhiteSox game. With none out and one on (R2), Twins batter Luis Arraez singled, Byron Buxton struck out, Carlos Correa walked, and Max Kepler took a 1-0 knuckle curve from White Sox pitcher Joe Kelly for a called second ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and thigh-high (px -1.11, pz 2.42), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Twins were leading, 3-2. The Twins ultimately won the contest, 6-3, in 10 innings.
