MLB Ejection 024 - Cory Blaser (1; AJ Pierzynski)

HP Umpire Cory Blaser ejected Braves C AJ Pierzynski for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 4th inning of the Diamondbacks-Braves game.

At the time of the ejection, the Diamondbacks were leading, 3-0. The Diamondbacks ultimately won the contest, 7-2.
