MLB Ejection 087: Adrian Johnson (1; Mark Kotsay)

HP Umpire Adrian Johnson ejected Padres Hitting Coach Mark Kotsay for arguing a strike one call in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Dodgers-Padres game.

Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and above the midpoint (px -.48, pz 3.322 [sz_top 3.22 / MOE 3.30]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Dodgers ultimately won the contest, 4-2, in 12 innings.
