Luis Rojas was ejected from Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates after a disastrous play in the bottom of the first inning.
Taijuan Walker was pitching and had the bases loaded with one out in the first. The New York Mets pitcher jammed Kevin Newman, who hit a bunt at the third base line. Walker thought the ball was fouled and effectively discarded it. However, he didn’t realize that plate umpire Jeremy Riggs ruled it fair.
