(Joe Rexrode of The Athletic verified as much with the university’s athletic department.)

Gilbert’s ejection took place throughout the bottom of the 5th inning and with the Volunteers tracking the Fighting Irish 8-2. He took a 1-0 fastball that appeared to miss out on the zone low, yet the umpire called it a strike. Gilbert revealed his aggravation by stepping towards the umpire and making what seemed a profane remark. Here’s the latter part of the series as it played out on the ESPN broadcast:

Gilbert, 21, is needed to miss out on Saturday’s video game based upon the NCAA’s guidelines about ejections, which might show to be an essential advancement as a loss on Friday would put the Volunteers in a win-or-go-home scenario on Saturday. (The incredibly regionals are a best-of-three series.) The winner of this series will advance to play the winner of the Texas-East Carolina series.

No other group ranked in the leading 25 completed the season with less than 10 losses. They were likewise considered the leading total seed in the competition by the NCAA choice committee. 

Playing without Gilbert definitely will not assist Tennessee’s possibilities of fending off removal.

He likewise strolled one more time (33) than he set out (32) in spite of playing in the Southeastern Conference.
