MLB Ejection 155: Doug Eddings (1; John Farrell)

1B Umpire Doug Eddings ejected Red Sox Manager John Farrell for arguing a Replay Review decision that overturned 2B Umpire Cory Blaser's out call in the top of the 2nd inning of the Astros-Red Sox game. With one out and two on, Astros batter Marwin Gonzalez hit a 1-0 fastball from Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly on the ground to shortstop Xander Bogaerts, who threw to first baseman Kelly Johnson. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Astros Manager Bo Porter, Blaser's ruling that Bogaerts legally tagged second base while in possession of the baseball was reversed; Farrell was ejected for arguing this specific call after a subsequent Jose Altuve grand slam, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the Astros were leading, 2-0. At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 6-0. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 8-1.

This is Doug Eddings (88)'s first ejection of 2014.
Doug Eddings now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (1 Prev + 2 MLB + 1 Correct [Crewmate] = 4).
Crew Chief Jim Joyce now has -2 points in Crew Division (-3 Previous + 1 Correct Call = -2).

This is the 155th ejection of 2014.
This is the 75th Manager ejection of 2014.
This is the Red Sox's 12th ejection of 2014, 1st in the AL East (BOS 12; TB 10; NYY 7; TOR 4; BAL 3).
