MLB Ejections 139-140: Chris Guccione (1, 2; Phillies x2)

HP Umpire Chris Guccione ejected Phillies pitcher A.J. Burnett and Manger Ryne Sandberg for arguing a ball one call in the bottom of the 2nd inning of the Phillies-Nationals game. With two out and none on, Burnett threw a 0-0 fastball to Nationals batter Jayson Werth for a called first ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and thigh high (px 1.311, pz 2.721), the call was correct. At the time of the ejections, the Nationals were leading, 5-0. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 11-0.

These are Chris Guccione (68)'s first and second ejections of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Chris Guccione now has 17 points in the UEFL Standings (9 Prev + 2*[2 MLB + 2 Correct] = 17).
Crew Chief Tom Hallion now has 11 points in Crew Division (9 Previous + 2 Correct Call = 11).

These are the 139th, 140th ejections of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 59th player ejection of 2014. Prior to ejection, Burnett's line was 1.2 IP, 5 R.
This is the 64th Manager ejection of 2014.
This is the Phillies' 5/6th ejection of 2014, T-1st in the NL East (ATL, PHI 6; MIA, NYM 5; WAS 1).
This is A.J. Burnett's first career MLB ejection.

This is Chris Guccione's first ejection since April 19, 2013 (Dale Sveum; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
