MLB Ejection S6: Brian Hertzog (S1; Eric Hosmer)

HP Umpire Brian Hertzog ejected Royals 1B Eric Hosmer for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the Mariners-Royals game. With two out and one on, Hosmer took a 3-2 fastball from Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located thigh high and over the outer edge of home plate (px = -.779), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Mariners were leading, 8-2. The Mariners ultimately won the contest, 9-6.
