MLB Ejection 190: Gary Cederstrom (1; Miguel Cabrera)

3B Umpire Gary Cederstrom ejected Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera for arguing a strike three call by HP Umpire Quinn Wolcott in the top of the 4th inning of the Tigers-Royals game. With none out and none on, Cabrera took a 3-2 fastball from Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and below the midpoint (px -.57, pz 3.41 [sz_top 3.48]) (the first pitch of the at-bat referred to was properly officiated as a strike as well), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Royals were leading, 4-0. The Royals ultimately won the contest, 12-1.

This is Gary Cederstrom (38)'s first ejection of 2015.
Gary Cederstrom now has 8 points in the UEFL Standings (5 Previous + 2 MLB + 1 Correct-Cremate = 8).
Crew Chief Gary Cederstrom now has 16 points in Crew Division (15 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 16).

This is the 190th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 85th player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Cabrera was 1-2 (SO) in the contest.
This is the Tigers' 8th ejection of 2015, 2nd in the AL Central (KC 12; DET 8; CEL, CWS 6; MIN 4).
This is Miguel Cabrera's first ejection since May 21, 2014 (Tim Timmons; QOC = Y [Check Swing]).
This is Gary Cederstrom's first ejection since May 22, 2012 (Carlos Ruiz; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
