MLB Ejection 151 - Ron Kulpa (3; Miguel Cairo)

3B Umpire Ron Kulpa ejected White Sox interim manager Miguel Cairo (warnings/fight) in the bottom of the 9th inning of the #Twins-#WhiteSox game. With one out and two on (R1, R2), White Sox batter Andrew Vaughn took a first-pitch sinker from Twins pitcher Jorge Lopez for a hit-by-pitch, resulting in a benches-clearing incident after which warnings were issued to both teams. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and struck Vaughn on the shoulder, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 3-3. The White Sox ultimately won the contest, 4-3.

This is Ron Kulpa (46)'s 3rd ejection of 2022.
Official Baseball Rule 6.02(c)(9): "If, in the umpire’s judgment, circumstances warrant, both teams may be officially 'warned' prior to the game or at any time during the game."
OBR 6.02(c)(9) Comment: "Team personnel may not come onto the playing surface to argue or dispute a warning issued under Rule 6.02(c)(9). If a manager, coach or player leaves the dugout or their position to dispute a warning, they should be warned to stop. If they continue, they are subject to ejection."

This the 151st ejection report of the 2022 MLB regular season.
This is the 81st manager ejection of 2022.
