MLB Ejection 218 - CB Bucknor (1; Kevin Cash)

HP Umpire CB Bucknor ejected Rays manager Kevin Cash (pitch clock violation call [automatic ball]; QOCN) in the bottom of the 5th inning of the #Rays-#Guardians game. With two out and none on, Bucknor called Rays pitcher Zack Littell for a pitch clock violation prior to a 0-2 pitch to Guardians batter Andres Gimenez. Replays indicate Littell indeed did not begin his delivery prior to the expiration of time, but that Guardians batter Gimenez first failed to be in the box and alert to the pitcher prior to the 8-second mark because the clock never reset when the batter requested "Time" after the 0-1 pitch, the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 4-4. The Guardians ultimately won the contest, 7-6, in 11 innings.

This is CB Bucknor (54)'s 1st ejection of 2023.
