MLB Ejections 216-7 - David Rackley (3-4; OAK x2)

HP Umpire David Rackley ejected A's RF Seth Brown and manager Mark Kotsay (strike two call; QOCN) in the top of the 6th inning of the #Athletics-#WhiteSox game. With two out and two on, Brown took a 2-1 changeup from White Sox pitcher Mike Clevinger for a called second strike before striking out swinging on a subsequent pitch. Replays indicate the 2-1 pitch was located over the inner edge of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px 0.84, pz 1.43 [sz_bot 1.65 / RAD 1.53 / MOE 1.45]), the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejections, the White Sox were leading, 3-1. The White Sox ultimately won the contest, 6-1.
