MLB Ejections 191-192: Timmons (5, 6; Freeman, Gonzalez)

HP Umpire Tim Timmons ejected Braves 1B Freddie Freeman and Manager Fredi Gonzalez for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Nationals-Braves game. With two out and one on, Freeman took a 3-2 curveball from Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and midpoint high (px -1.035, pz 3.396 / sz_top 3.29 [MOE 3.31]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejections, the Nationals were leading, 2-0. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 4-2.

These are Tim Timmons (95)'s fifth and sixth ejections of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Tim Timmons now has 10 points in the UEFL Standings (14 Prev + 2*[2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call] = 10).
Crew Chief Tom Hallion now has 19 points in Crew Division (19 Previous + 0 Incorrect Calls = 19).

These are the 191st and 192nd ejections of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 82nd player ejection of 2014. Prior to his ejection, Freeman was 1-3 in the contest.
This is the 87th Manager ejection of 2014.
This is the Braves' 8/9th ejection of 2014, T-1st in the NL East (ATL, MIA 9; NYM 8; PHI 7; WAS 1).
