MLB Ejections 089-090: Hirschbeck (3-4; Pagan, Bochy)

HP Umpire John Hirschbeck ejected Giants CF Angel Pagan and Manager Bruce Bochy for arguing a strike two call in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Mariners-Giants game. With one out and none on, Pagan took a 1-1 fastball from Mariners pitcher Tom Wilhelmsen for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -.938, pz 1.491 [sz_bot 1.530 / MOE 1.447]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection the Giants were leading, 3-2. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 6-2.

These are John Hirschbeck (17)'s third and fourth ejections of 2015.
John Hirschbeck now has 6 points in the UEFL Standings (10 Prev + 2*[2 MLB - 4 Incorrect] = 6).
Crew Chief John Hirschbeck now has 12 points in Crew Division (12 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 12).

These are the 89th and 90th ejections of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 42nd player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Pagan was 1-4 in the contest (SO).
This is the 41st Manager ejection of 2015.
This is the Giants' 2/3rd ejection of 2015, T-3rd in the NL West (SD 9; LAD 6; COL, SF 3; ARI 1).

This is Bruce Bochy's 2nd ejection of 2015, first since April 24 (John Tumpane; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
