MLB Ejection 162: Quinn Wolcott (2; Salvador Perez)

HP Umpire Quinn Wolcott ejected Royals C Salvador Perez for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Angels-Royals game. With none out and none on, Perez took a 1-2 sinker from Angels pitcher Hector Santiago for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located along the inner edge of home plate and knee high (px -.926, pz 1.648 [sz_bot 1.610]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 2-2. The Royals ultimately won the contest, 4-3, in 10 innings.

This is Quinn Wolcott (81)'s second ejection of 2015.
Quinn Wolcott now has 10 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 10).
Crew Chief Gary Cederstrom now has 12 points in Crew Division (11 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 12).

This is the 162nd ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 73rd player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Perez was 0-3 (SO) in the contest.
This is the Royals' 11th ejection of 2015, 1st in the AL Central (KC 11; CWS, DET 6; CLE 5; MIN 3).
This is Salvador Perez's first career MLB ejection.
