MLB Ejection 071: Jerry Meals (1; Anthony Rizzo)

HP Umpire Jerry Meals ejected Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 4th inning of the Cubs-Brewers game. With none out and one on, Rizzo took three consecutive pitches from Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse for called first, second and third strikes. Replays indicate the second called strike was located over the outer half of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px -.681, pz 1.493 / sz_bot 1.730), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Brewers were leading, 8-0. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 9-0.

This is Jerry Meals (41)'s first ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Jerry Meals now has 0 points in the UEFL Standings (2 Prev + 2 MLB + -4 Incorrect = 0).
Crew Chief Jerry Meals now has 6 points in the UEFL's Crew Division (6 Prev + 0 N = 6).

This is the 71st ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 31st player ejection of 2014. Prior to ejection, Rizzo was 0-1 in the contest.
This is the Cubs' 5th ejection of 2014, 1st in the NL Central (CHC 5; PIT, STL 3; CIN, MIL 2).
This is Anthony Rizzo's first career MLB ejection.
This is Jerry Meals' first ejection since July 29, 2013 (John Farrell; QOC = Y [Safe/Out]).
