Baseball Twitter found itself in flames on Wednesday night after home plate umpire Adam Beck ejected both Kevin Plawecki and Red Sox manager Alex Cora during the sixth inning of a tied ballgame.

With a 3-2 count, the bases full, and a tie game at 3-3, Plawecki took a pitch from Atlanta Braves reliever Collin McHugh that did not appear close to the strike zone for a strikeout looking. Plawecki then faces Beck in frustration, resulting in his ejection from the game.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora also felt that an explanation from Beck became necessary about the strike three call. That resulted in Cora’s ejection from the ballgame. The ejection marks the second time in the last four games that Cora ended up thrown out of via ejection.

Dennis Eckersley, a former MLB pitcher and current New England Sports Network [NESN] baseball commentator, talked about on the telecast for the Red Sox why Plawecki and Cora were so frustrated with Beck’s call.

“Out of nowhere, he calls strike three. He hasn’t made a call like that all night,” Eckersley said. “More crucial, bases loaded, 3-2. Plawecki knew it was a ball. That’s why you never see something like this happen.”

The Red Sox went on to lose 5-3. With Boston off to a porous 11-19 start this season, every game is crucial.

Already facing an 11-game deficit versus the first-place New York Yankees, the Red Sox cannot afford to fall further behind heading into the summer stretch.

It is important to note that UmpScorecards –– a Twitter account that values MLB umpire’s on a game-to-game basis –– ranks Beck as the 15th best MLB umpire out of 69 qualifiers this season in terms of calling balls and strikes accurately (94.36%).
