MLB Ejection 088: Eric Cooper (1; Maikel Franco)

HP Umpire Eric Cooper ejected Phillies 3B Maikel Franco for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 7th inning of the Phillies-Orioels game. With none out and one on, Franco took a 2-2 fastball from Orioles pitcher Wei-Yin Chen 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 -.5, pz 1.41 [sz_bot 1.4]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Orioles were leading, 4-0. The Orioles ultimately won the contest, 4-0.

This is Eric Cooper (56)'s first ejection of 2015.
Eric Cooper now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Gary Cederstrom now has 3 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 3).

This is the 88th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 41st ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Franco was 0-3 in the contest (2 SO).
This is the Phillies' 2nd ejection of 2015, T-3rd in the NL East (WAS 5; ATL 3; NYM, PHI 2; MIA 1).
This is Maikel Franco's first career MLB ejection.
This is Eric Cooper's first ejection since September 21, 2013 (Munenori Kawasaki; QOC = N [Safe/Out]).
