Ejections: Paul Emmel (1)

HP Umpire Paul Emmel ejected Mariners Manager Eric Wedge for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 2nd inning of the Braves-Mariners game. With two out and one on, Mariners batter Jack Cust took a 3-2 slider from braves pitcher Derek Lowe for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located thigh high and over the heart of home plate, the call was correct. Replays indicate Pitch #1, a called strike, was also correctly ruled.* At the time of the ejection, the contest was tied, 0-0. The Braves ultimately won the contest, 5-3.

This is Paul Emmel (50)'s first ejection of 2011.
Paul Emmel now has 4 points in the Umpire Ejection Fantasy League (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4)

I still do not know what Wedge was so pissed about...especially early in this game. Nothing had really happened at this point.
