MLB Ejection 045 - Chris Guccione (1; Craig Counsell)

3B Umpire Chris Guccione ejected Brewers manager Craig Counsell (pitcher timer/disengagement limit violation no-call) in the top of the 4th inning of the #Brewers-#Giants game. With none out and none on, Brewers batter Willy Adames singled. During batter Rowdy Tellez's plate appearance, Giants pitcher Alex Cobb, sensing the pitch clock was nearing expiration, disengaged the pitcher's plate and was visited on the mound by catcher Joey Bart. Cobb subsequently attempted two pick off throws where baserunner R1 Adames was safe at first, initially ruled a third disengagement by 1B Umpire Jeremy Riggs, resulting in the automatic advancement of the runner to second base, before consultation with the other umpires, upon which the call was reversed to ruling Cobbs' latest pickoff attempt his second—not third—disengagement, thus returning runner Adames to first base. Replays indicate Cobbs' first disengagement was a mound visit, which is excluded by the pitch timer rules from being counted as a free disengagement, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Giants were leading, 3-0. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 4-1.

This is Chris Guccione (68)'s 1st ejection of 2023.
