Ejections: Sam Holbrook (3)

HP Umpire Sam Holbrook ejected Nationals Bench Coach Pat Corrales for arguing a strike one call in the top of the 9th inning of the Nationals-Reds game. With none out and one on, Nationals batter Rick Ankiel took a 0-0 fastball from Reds pitcher Nick Masset for strike one. Replays indicate the 0-0 pitch was located at the midpoint between the shoulders and the top of the jersey pants and over the outer portion of the plate, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Nationals were leading, 4-3. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 5-4, in 14 innings on a walk-off home run.

This is Sam Holbrook (34)'s third ejection of 2011.
