MLB Ejection 089 - Jansen Visconti (1; Mark Kotsay)

HP Umpire Jansen Visconti ejected Athletics manager Mark Kotsay (strike three call to Ryan Noda; QOCY) in the top of the 7th inning of the #Athletics-Pirates game. With two out and none on, A's batter Noda took a 3-2 fastball from Pirates pitcher Johan Oviedo for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -0.15, pz 1.50 [sz_bot 1.61 / RAD 1.49]), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Pirates were leading, 4-3. The Pirates ultimately won the contest, 5-4.

This is Jansen Visconti (52)'s 1st ejection of 2023.
*This pitch was located 1.12 vertical inches from being deemed incorrect.

A half inning earlier, Pittsburgh took the lead by scoring a run on a time play. With the bases loaded and one out, Pirates batter Jack Suwinski hit a fly ball to right field, caught by A's outfielder Seth Brown, who threw to third base as Pirates baserunners R3 Austin Hedges and R2 Andrew McCutchen tagged up. As Pirates third baseman Jonah Bride caught the thrown ball, McCutchen stopped and got into a brief rundown, providing just a few seconds of extra time to ensure preceding runner R3 Hedges touched home plate and scored a run before the third out was recorded, as signaled by HP Umpire Visconti.

This is the 89th ejection report of the 2023 MLB regular season.
This is the 43rd manager ejection of 2023. Ejection Tally: 43 Managers, 37 Players, 9 Coaches.
This is Oakland's 4th ejection of 2023, T-1st in the AL West (OAK, SEA 4; HOU 3; LAA 2; TEX 1).
This is Mark Kotsay's 3rd ejection of 2023, 1st since May 14 (Dan Bellino; QOC = N [Balls/Strikes]).
