MLB Ejection 137 - Bill Welke (1; Don Mattingly)

HP Umpire Bill Welke ejected Marlins Manager Don Mattingly for arguing a check swing (ball two) call by 3B Umpire Pat Hoberg in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the Marlins-Reds game. With none out and none on, Reds batter Tucker Barnhart attempted to check his swing on a 1-0 changeup from Marlins pitcher David Phelps. Play reviewed and deferred by the UEFL Appeals Board (4-4-1). At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 1-1. The Marlins ultimately won the contest, 6-3.

This is Bill Welke (52)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Bill Welke now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (2 Previous + 2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable Call = 4).
Crew Chief Larry Vanover now has 5 points in Crew Division (4 Previous + 1 Irrecusable Call = 5).

This is the 137th ejection report of the 2016 regular season.
This is the 55th Manager ejection of 2016.
