MLB Ejection 065: Marty Foster (3; Justin Turner)

HP Umpire Marty Foster ejected Dodgers 3B Justin Turner for arguing a strike three call to end the top of the 9th inning of the Dodgers-Cardinals game. With two out and two on, Turner took a 1-2 fastball from Cardinals pitcher Trevor Rosenthal for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and thigh-high (px 1.019, pz 2.455), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Cardinals had won the contest, 3-1.

This is Marty Foster (60)'s third ejection of 2015.
Marty Foster now has 5 points in the UEFL Standings (7 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = 5).
Crew Chief Mike Winters now has 11 points in Crew Division (11 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 11).

This is the 65th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 32nd player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Turner was 0-1 (SO) in the contest.
This is the Dodgers' 5th ejection of 2015, T-1st in the NL West (LAD, SD 5; COL 3; SF 1; ARI 0).
This is Justin Turner's first career MLB ejection.
This is Marty Foster's first ejection since May 17, 2015 (Charlie Blackmon; QOC = N [Balls/Strikes]).
