MLB Ejection 087 - Hunter Wendelstedt (2; Francoeur)

1B Umpire Hunter Wendelstedt ejected Braves LF Jeff Francoeur for arguing a Replay Review (out) decision that affirmed Wendelstedt's out call in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Indians-Braves game. With one out and none on, Braves batter Ender Inciarte hit a 0-1 knuckle curve from Indians pitcher Cody Allen on the ground to first baseman Carlos Santana, who threw to Allen as Inciarte arrived at first base, ruled out by Wendelstedt. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Braves Interim Manager Brian Snitker, Wendelstedt's ruling stood based on a lack of clear and convincing evidence to confirm or overturn Wendelstedt's call, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Indians were leading, 5-3. The Indians ultimately won the contest, 5-3.

This is Hunter Wendelstedt (21)'s second ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Hunter Wendelstedt now has 9 points in the UEFL Standings (5 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 9).
