MLB Ejections 071-072: Will Little (1-2; Zunino, McClendon)

1B Umpire Will Little ejected Mariners C Mike Zunino and Manager Lloyd McClendon for arguing a ball four (check swing) call in the top of the 3rd inning of the Yankees-Mariners game. With two out and one on, Yankees batter Alex Rodriguez attempted to check his swing on a 3-2 changeup from Mariners pitcher Mike Montgomery, ruled no swing by HP Umpire Mike DiMuro and affirmed by Little. Play was reviewed and affirmed by the UEFL Appeals Board (6-2-0), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Yankees ultimately won the contest, 5-3.

These are Will Little (93)'s first and second ejections of 2015.
Will Little now has ? points in the UEFL Standings (-2 Previous + 2*[2 MLB + ?] = ?).
Crew Chief Phil Cuzzi now has ? points in Crew Division (0 Previous + ? Call = ?).
