MLB Ejection 039 - Joe West (1; Brock Holt)

HP Umpire Joe West ejected Red Sox LF Brock Holt for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Astros-Red Sox game. With one out and one on, Holt took a 2-2 sinker from Astros pitcher Scott Feldman for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -.745, pz 1.470 [sz_bot 1.480 / MOE 1.397]) and that all other callable pitches during at bat had been properly officiated, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 9-8. The Red Sox ultimately won the contest, 10-9.

This is Joe West (22)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Joe West now has 7 points in the UEFL Standings (3 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 7).
