MLB Ejection 037 - Brian Knight (2; Ray Searage)

HP Umpire Brian Knight ejected Pirates Pitching Coach Ray Searage for arguing a ball four call in the bottom of the 4th inning of the Pirates-Cubs game. With none out and none on, Cubs batter Ben Zobrist took a 3-2 fastball from Pirates pitcher Jeff Locke for a called fourth ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and belt high (px 1.419, pz 2.329) and that all other pitches in the at bat had been properly officiated, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Cubs were leading, 3-2. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 8-2.

This is Brian Knight (91)'s second ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Brian Knight now has 9 points in the UEFL Standings (5 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 9).

This is the Pirates' 3rd ejection of 2016, 1st in the NL Central (PIT 3; CIN 2; CHC 1; MIL, STL 0).
