Javy Baez and AJ Hinch were both ejected from their Detroit Tigers’ 2-0 loss to the Oakland A’s on Monday night.
Baez was batting with a runner on first and nobody out in the bottom of the ninth. Dany Jimenez threw a 2-2 breaking ball that was up and hit the outside corner. Umpire Nick Mahrley called the pitch a strike, and Baez disagreed and let the umpire know.
Tigers manager Hinch came out and tried to step in between them but they both got ejected.
The crazy thing is that wasn’t even a bad call by Mahrley! The pitch was right on the border of being a strike.
