MLB Ejection 097 - Brian Knight (3; Chip Hale)

HP Umpire Brian Knight ejected Diamondbacks Manager Chip Hale for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Giants-Diamondbacks game. With one out and one on, Diamondbacks batter Chris Herrmann took a 2-2 fastball from Giants pitcher Jeff Samardzija for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px -1.023, pz 1.526 [sz_bot 1.610 / MOE 1.527]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Giants were leading, 5-3. The Diamondbacks ultimately won the contest, 6-5.

This is Brian Knight (91)'s third ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Brian Knight now has -4 points in the UEFL Standings (-2 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = -4).
