MLB Ejection 114 - John Tumpane (4; Bud Black)

3B Umpire John Tumpane ejected Rockies manager Bud Black (Replay Review decision that overturned HP Umpire Marvin Hudson's out call/home plate collision no-call to safe/violation; QOCN) in the bottom of the 5th inning of the #Rockies-#Padres game. With two out and two on (R1, R2), Padres batter Ha-Seong Kim hit a 0-0 sinker from Rockies pitcher Jake Bird on a ground ball to left fielder Connor Joe, who threw to catcher Brian Serven as Padres baserunner R2 Wil Myers arrived at home plate, ruled out by HP Umpire Hudson. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Padres manager Bob Melvin, Hudson's call was overturned to safe with the Replay Official ruling that Serven violated baseball's home plate collision rule by improperly blocking the runner's access to home plate. Replays indicate catcher Serven appeared to initially position himself to the front and side of home plate, giving runner Myers a path, before shuffling to his left in response to the trajectory of LF Joe's throw, which is legal, the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the Padres were leading, 4-3. The Padres ultimately won the contest, 13-5.

This is John Tumpane (74)'s 4th ejection of 2022.
John Tumpane now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (4 Prev + 2 MLB - 2 Incorrect-Crewmate = 4).
Crew Chief Marvin Hudson now has 3 points in Crew Division (3 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 3).
*Official Baseball Rule 6.01(i)(2): "Unless the catcher is in possession of the ball, the catcher cannot block the pathway of the runner as they are attempting to score...Not withstanding the above, it shall not be considered a violation of this Rule 6.01(i)(2) if the catcher blocks the pathway of the runner in a legitimate attempt to field the throw (e.g., in reaction to the direction, trajectory or the hop of the incoming throw, or in reaction to a throw that originates from a pitcher or drawn-in infielder)."

This is the 114th ejection report of the 2022 MLB regular season.
This is the 61st manager ejection of 2022.
This is Colorado's 2nd ejection of 2022, T-3rd in the NL West (SD 4; ARI 3; COL, SF 2; LAD 1).
