MLB Ejection 119 - Jeff Kellogg (5; Terry Collins)

1B Umpire Jeff Kellogg ejected Mets Manager Terry Collins for arguing a Replay Review decision that overturned 3B Umpire Chris Guccione's home run call to an out due to fan interference in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Rockies-Mets game. With none out and none on, Mets batter Wilmer Flores hit a 1-1 fastball from Rockies pitcher Gonzalez Germen on a fly ball to deep left field, whereupon Rockies left fielder David Dahl prepared to make a play on the batted ball as a spectator caught the live ball near the top of the outfield wall. Upon Replay Review as the result of a Crew Chief review, the Replay Official determined the fan reached out onto the playing field to touch the baseball, and in doing so, interfered and prevented outfielder Dahl from making the putout, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Rockies were leading, 7-2. The Rockies ultimately won the contest, 7-2.

This is Jeff Kellogg (8)'s fifth ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Jeff Kellogg now has 15 points in the UEFL Standings (11 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 15).
Crew Chief Jeff Kellogg now has 6 points in Crew Division (5 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 6).
