MLB Ejection S5: Jeff Morrow (S2; Logan Morrison)

HP Umpire Jeff Morrow ejected Mariners 1B Logan Morrison for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Padres-Mariners game. With two out and none on, Morrison took a 0-2 fastball from Padres pitcher Tony Sipp for a called third strike, immediately following two earlier called strikes to begin the at bat. Replays indicate the earlier pitches were located within the bounds of the strike zone while the decisive pitch was located thigh high and off the outer edge of home plate (px = -1.093), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Mariners were leading, 5-4. The contest ultimately ended in a tie, 5-5, in regulation.

This is Jeff Morrow (-)'s 2nd ejection of Spring Training.
Jeff Morrow now has 0 points in the UEFL (0 Previous + 0 AAA + -0 Penalty + 0 Incorrect Call = 0).

What browser do you use? For instance, if you're using Firefox's HTML5 player, it might have to do with codecs and how the player decodes from vine.

I think Morrow's mechanics! Very sharp. I might adopt that strike 3 punch out!
