MLB Ejection 016 - Todd Tichenor (2; Bruce Bochy)

HP Umpire Todd Tichenor ejected Rangers manager Bruce Bochy (fair ball call by 3B Umpire Nestor Ceja; QOCY) in the top of the 8th inning of the #Rangers-#Tigers game. With two out and two on, Rangers batter Adolis García hit a 1-1 splitter from Tigers pitcher Shelby Miller on the ground to third base, fielded by third baseman Gio Urshela and ruled fair by Ceja; García was retired at first base after he didn't initially run during the play. Replays indicate the baseball bounded over third base as it passed the bag, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Rangers were leading, 8-7. The Rangers ultimately won the contest, 9-7.
