MLB Ejection 064: Andy Fletcher (2; Yunel Escobar)

HP Umpire Andy Fletcher ejected Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 7th inning of the Nationals-Reds game. With one out and none on, Escobar took a 1-2 slider from Reds pitcher Ryan Mattheus for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px .433, pz 1.594 [sz_bot 1.5]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Nationals were leading, 5-4. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 8-5.
