Ejections: Jerry Meals (1)

2B Umpire Jerry Meals ejected Mariners Manager Eric Wedge for arguing an out call in bottom of the 9th inning of the Twins-Mariners game. With one out and one on, Mariners batter Jack Cust hit a 0-0 fastball from Twins pitcher Matt Capps to third baseman Danny Valencia, to second baseman Alexi Casilla to force out Mariners baserunner Miguel Olivo. Replays indicate although the throw was wide, Casilla briefly possessed the baseball while in contact with second base, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Twins led the contest, 2-1. The Twins ultimately won the contest, 2-1.

This is Jerry Meals (41)'s first ejection of 2011.
Jerry Meals now has 8 points in the Umpire Ejection Fantasy League (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4)
Jerry Meals was not drafted in 2011.

This is the 40th ejection of 2011.
This is the 21st Manager ejection of 2011.

Wrap: Twins @ Mariners 5/17/11

HA! What a bunch of homers! "Oh no! Come on! No way! It wasn't even close! He's clearly there! He's poppin up from the bag!"

All this bantering and nonsense then comes "Wellll, looks like Mr. Meals got it right." Funny, Meals got the call right in real time. It took the slow-motion for the announcers to realize he was right.

Go Jerry!

I agree with the homer announcers... they owe Mr. Meals an apology.

"Maybe Mr. Meals we owe an apology to...maybe he was out".

Hell has officially frozen over.
