MLB Ejection 180 - Gabe Morales (3; Ruben Niebla)

1B Umpire Gabe Morales ejected Padres pitching coach Ruben Niebla (balk call on pitcher Blake Snell; QOCY) in the top of the 4th inning of the #Dodgers-#Padres game. With two out and one on, Morales called Snell for a balk. Replays indicate Snell employed multiple Stretch positions and/or went from Stretch to Set back to Stretch, primarily due to a PitchCom issue, but illegal nonetheless, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Dodgers were leading, 2-0. The Padres ultimately won the contest, 8-3.

This is Gabe Morales (47)'s 3rd ejection of 2023.

This is the 180th ejection report of the 2023 MLB regular season.
This is the 24th coach ejection of 2023. Ejection Tally: 81 Managers, 75 Players, 24 Coaches.
This is San Diego's 9th ejection of 2023, 1st in the NL West (SD 9; ARI 7; COL 4; LAD 3; SF 2).
This is Ruben Niebla's first career MLB ejection.
