MLB Ejection 050 - Bill Miller (2; John Farrell)

HP Umpire Bill Miller ejected Red Sox Manager John Farrell for arguing a strike one call in the top of the 7th inning of the Red Sox-Royals game. With one out and none on, Red Sox batter Mookie Betts took a 0-0 cutter from Royals pitcher Luke Hochevar for a called first strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px .584, pz 1.427 [sz_bot 1.490 / MOE 1.407]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Royals were leading, 5-4. The Royals ultimately won the contest, 8-4.
