MLB Ejection S-3: Ben May (S1; Alex Claudio)

HP Umpire Ben May ejected Rangers pitcher Alex Claudio for throwing at Mariners batter Jesus Sucre in the top of the 7th inning of the Mariners-Rangers game. With none out and none on, Sucre took a first-pitch fastball from Claudio for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside (pitch f/x unavailable) and was the third hit batsman of the game, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Mariners were leading, 3-2. The contest ultimately ended in a 4-4 tie.

Ben May now has 0 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 0 [Spring Training Ejection] = 0).
