MLB Ejection 019 - CB Bucknor (1; Eric Hosmer)

HP Umpire CB Bucknor ejected Royals 1B Eric Hosmer for arguing a strike two call in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Nationals-Royals game. With none out and none on, Hosmer took two consecutive 0-0 pitches from Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg for called first and second strikes before striking out swinging on a 3-2 changeup four pitches later. Replays indicate the first pitch was located over the inner edge of home plate and belt high (px -.897, pz 2.529) and the second pitch was located off the inner edge of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px -.982, pz 1.598 [sz_bot 1.690 / MOE 1.607]), the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the Nationals were leading, 13-2. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 13-2.

This is CB Bucknor (54)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
CB Bucknor now has 0 points in the UEFL Standings (2 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = 0).
Crew Chief Fieldin Culbreth now has 6 points in Crew Division (6 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 6).
*The call would have been correct had px been greater than |.917| and pz greater than 1.607.

This is the 10th player ejection of 2016. Prior to ejection, Hosmer was 1-3 (SO) in the contest.
