MLB Ejection 099 - Sam Holbrook (1; Clint Hurdle)

HP Umpire Sam Holbrook ejected Pirates Manager Clint Hurdle for arguing a ball two call in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Pirates-A's game. With one out and one on (R3), A's batter Jake Smolinski took a 1-0 fastball from Pirates pitcher A.J. Schugel for a called second ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the inner edge of home plate and thigh high (px -1.194, pz 1.873) and that all pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Pirates were leading, 4-3. The Pirates ultimately won the contest, 6-3.

This is Sam Holbrook (34)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Sam Holbrook now has 3 points in the UEFL Standings (-1 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 3).
Crew Chief Gerry Davis now has -4 points in Crew Division (-5 Previous + 1 Correct Call = -4).

This is the 40th Manager ejection of 2016.
