MLB Ejection 100 - Jerry Meals (2; Joe Maddon)

HP Umpire Jerry Meals ejected Cubs Manager Joe Maddon for arguing a strike one call in the bottom of the 2nd inning of the Reds-Cubs game. With two out and one on, Cubs batter David Ross took a 3-0 sinker from Reds pitcher Brandon Finnegan for a called first strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner edge of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px -.823, pz 1.469 [sz_bot 1.660 / MOE 1.577]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Reds were leading, 4-0. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 9-5.
