MLB Ejection 047: Marty Foster (2; Charlie Blackmon)

HP Umpire Marty Foster ejected Rockies LF Charlie Blackmon for arguing a strike two call in the top of the 5th inning of the Rockies-Dodgers game. With two out and two on, Blackmon took a 1-1 cutter from Dodgers pitcher Mike Bolsinger for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and above the midpoint (px -0.600, pz 3.647 [sz_top 3.450 / MOE 3.533]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Dodgers were leading, 1-0. The Dodgers ultimately won the contest, 1-0.

This is Marty Foster (60)'s second ejection of 2015.
Marty Foster now has 4 point in the UEFL Standings (6 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = 4).
Crew Chief Mike Winters now has 4 points in Crew Division (4 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 4).

This is the 47th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 21st player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Blackmon was 0-3 in the contest (3 SOs).
This is the Rockies' 2nd ejection of 2015, T-2nd in the NL West (SD 4; COL, LAD 2; SF 1; ARI 0).
This is Charlie Blackmon's first career MLB ejection.
This is Marty Foster's first ejection since April 25, 2015 (Matt Kemp; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).

Wrap: Colorado Rockies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers, 5/17/15
