MLB Ejection 157 - Pat Hoberg (5; Gregory Polanco)

HP Umpire Pat Hoberg ejected Pirates LF Gregory Polanco for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the Reds-Pirates game.

Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -.699, pz 1.881 [sz_bot 1.950 / MOE 1.867]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Reds were leading, 6-0.
