MLB Ejection 176: James Hoye (4; Yasiel Puig)

HP Umpire James Hoye ejected Dodgers RF Yasiel Puig for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 9th inning of the Dodgers-Astros game. With one out and two on, Puig took a 2-2 fastball from Astros pitcher Vincent Velasquez for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and hollow of the knee high (px .561, pz 1.647 [sz_bot 1.660 / MOE 1.577]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Dodgers were leading, 2-1. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

This is James Hoye (92)'s fourth ejection of 2015.
James Hoye now has 10 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 10).
Crew Chief John Hirschbeck now has 12 points in Crew Division (11 Prev + 1 Correct Call = 12).

This is the 176th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 78th player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Puig was 2-4 (SO) in the contest.
This is the Dodgers' 8th ejection of 2015, 2nd in the NL West (SD 14; LAD 8; SF 5; COL 4; ARI 3).
This is Yasiel Puig's first ejection since July 12, 2014 (David Rackley; QOC = N [Balls/Strikes]).
