MLB Ejection 044: Lance Barrett (2; BJ Upton)

HP Umpire Lance Barrett ejected Braves CF B.J. Upton for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 6th inning of the Braves-Giants game. With one out and none on, batter Upton took a 2-2 curveball from Giants pitcher Juan Gutierrez for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and thigh high (px .937, pz 2.412), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Giants were leading, 7-4. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 10-4.

This is Lance Barrett (94)'s second ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Lance Barrett now has 1 point in the UEFL Standings (3 Previous + 2 MLB + -4 Incorrect Call = 1).
Crew Chief Dana DeMuth now has 1 point in the UEFL's Crew Division (1 Prev + 0 N = 1).

This is the 44th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 16th player ejection of 2014. Prior to ejection, Upton was 0-3 in the contest.
This is the Braves' 1st ejection of 2014, 2nd in the NL East (NYM 3; ATL 1; MIA, PHI, WAS 0).
This is B.J. Upton's first ejection since July 7, 2013 (Doug Eddings; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
This is Lance Barrett's first ejection since April 17, 2014 (Jason Kipnis; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
