MLB Ejection 015 - Erich Bacchus (1; Bruce Bochy)

HP Umpire Erich Bacchus ejected Rangers manager Bruce Bochy (ball two call; QOCN) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the #Rangers-#Astros game. With one out and two on (R1, R2), Astros batter Kyle Tucker took a 1-1 slider from Rangers pitcher Josh Sborz for a called second ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px 0.16, pz 1.76 [sz_bot 1.77 / RAD 1.65 / MOE 1.73]), the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 6-2. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 8-2.

This is Erich Bacchus (12)'s 1st ejection of 2023.
*This pitch was located 0.36 vertical inches from being deemed correct.
