MLB Ejection 132: Dan Bellino (6; Yunel Escobar)

HP Umpire Dan Bellino ejected Rays SS Yunel Escobar for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 4th inning of the Rays-Cardinals game. With none out and none on, Escobar took a 3-2 fastball from Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -.479, pz 1.511 / sz_bot 1.580 [MOE 1.497]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Rays were leading, 1-0. The Rays ultimately won the contest, 3-0.

This is Dan Bellino (2)'s sixth ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Dan Bellino now has 25 points in the UEFL Standings (21 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 25).
Crew Chief Kerwin Danley now has 2 points in Crew Division (1 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 2).

This is the 132nd ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 57th player ejection of 2014. Prior to ejection, Escobar was 1-2 in the contest.
This is the Rays' 8th ejection of 2014, 2nd in the AL East (BOS 10; TB 8; NYY 6; TOR 4; BAL 2).
This is Yunel Escobar's first ejection since May 25, 2014 (Larry Vanover; QOC = U [Fighting]).
This is Dan Bellino's first ejection since May 30, 2014 (Workman, Butterfield; QOC = U [Throwing At]).
