MLB Ejection 118 - Marty Foster (2; David Freese)

HP Umpire Marty Foster ejected Pirates 1B David Freese for arguing a strike one call in the top of the 5th inning of the Pirates-Brewers game. With two out and none on, Freese took a 1-0 fastball from Brewers pitcher Chase Anderson for a called first strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and below the midpoint (px -.828, pz 3.065 [sz_top 3.6]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Brewers were leading, 2-1. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 5-3.

This is Marty Foster (60)'s second ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Marty Foster now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Mike Winters now has 9 points in Crew Division (8 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 9).

This is the 118th ejection report of the 2016 regular season.
This is the 56th player ejection of 2016. Prior to ejection, Freese was 0-3 (2 SO) in the contest.
This is Pittsburgh's 12th ejection of 2016, 1st in the NL Central (PIT 12; CIN 6; CHC 3; STL 1; MIL 0).
This is David Freese's first career MLB ejection.
This is Marty Foster's first ejection since June 18, 2016 (Terry Pendleton; QOC = N [Balk]).
