MLB Ejections 130-31 - Barksdale, Porter (Francona, Straw)

HP Umpire Lance Barksdale ejected Guardians manager Terry Francona and 3B Umpire Alan Porter ejected Guardians CF Myles Straw (foul ball reversed to foul tip or swinging strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 9th inning of the #Tigers-#Indians game. With one out and one on (R3), Indians batter Myles Straw attempted to hit a 2-2 slider from Tigers pitcher Joe Jimenez, originally ruled a foul ball by HP Umpire Barksdale, and reversed following crew consultation to a third strike. Replays do not conclusively indicate whether or not Straw's bat made contact with the baseball, but do conclusively show that Tigers catcher Tucker Barnhart ultimately caught the ball prior to the ball touching the ground; whether via foul tip or via swinging strike, the call of strike three/out was correct. At the time of the ejections, the Tigers were leading, 4-3. The Tigers ultimately won the contest, 4-3.

This is Lance Barksdale (23)'s 2nd ejection of 2022.
