MLB Ejection 044 - Chad Fairchild (1; Bud Black)

HP Umpire Chad Fairchild ejected Rockies manager Bud Black (Replay Review: denied manager's challenge [ran out of time] on out call by 2B Umpire Carlos Torres; QOCN) in the bottom of the 5th inning of the #Rangers-#Rockies game. With two out and one on, Rockies baserunner Ezequiel Tovar attempted to steal second base on a 1-1 fastball from Rangers pitcher Andrew Heaney to Rockies batter Ryan McMahon, ruled a ball by HP Umpire Fairchild as Rangers catcher Jonah Heim threw to shortstop Corey Seager, whose tag of Rockies baserunner R1 was ruled an out by 2B Umpire Carlos Torres. Replays indicate that after oversliding the base with his hand, the runner's foot touched second base and no tag was applied while the runner was off the base, the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Rangers were leading, 2-1. The Rockies ultimately won the contest, 8-3.
