MLB Ejection 185: Joe West (8; Kevin Long)

HP Umpire Joe West ejected Mets Hitting Coach Kevin Long for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the Red Sox-Mets game. With none out and none on, Mets batter Curtis Granderson took a 0-2 fastball from Red Sox pitcher Wade Miley for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and thigh high (px -1.140, pz 1.909), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Mets were leading, 1-0. The Mets ultimately won the contest, 5-4.

This is Joe West (22)'s eighth ejection of 2015.
Joe West now has 7 points in the UEFL Standings (5 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = 3).
Crew Chief John Hirschbeck now has 17 points in Crew Division (17 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 17).

This is the 185th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the Mets' 5th ejection of 2015, T-2nd in the NL East (WAS 7; NYM, PHI 5; ATL 4; MIA 3).
This is Kevin Long's first ejection since July 2, 2014 (Alfonso Marquez; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
This is Joe West's first ejection since August 15, 2015 (Robin Ventura; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
