MLB Ejection 059 - Dana DeMuth (1; Colby Rasmus)

HP Umpire Dana DeMuth ejected Astros LF Colby Rasmus for arguing a strike two call in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Orioles-Astros game. With one out and none on, Rasmus took a 3-1 fastball and, later, 3-2 knuckle curve from Orioles pitcher Chris Tillman for called second and third third strikes. Replays indicate the 3-1 pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate (px 1.306) while the 3-2 pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and navel high (px -.827, pz 3.116 [sz_top 3.510]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 2-2. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 3-2, in 13 innings.

This is Dana DeMuth (32)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Dana DeMuth now has -1 points in the UEFL Standings (1 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Correct Call = -1).
