MLB Ejection 174 - Marty Foster (3; Danny Valencia)

HP Umpire Marty Foster ejected Athletics 3B Danny Valencia for arguing a strike two call in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Astros-Athletics game. With two out and none on, Valencia took a 3-1 fastball from Astros pitcher Chris Devenski for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and thigh high (px -.974, pz 1.983), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 1-1. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 2-1, in 10 innings.

This is Marty Foster (60)'s third ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Marty Foster now has -2 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = -2).
Crew Chief Mike Winters now has 11 points in Crew Division (11 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 11).

This is the 174th ejection report of the 2016 regular season.
This is the 82nd player ejection of 2016. Prior to ejection, Valencia was 0-4 (2 SO) in the contest.
This is Oakland's 6th ejection of 2016, T-3rd in the AL West (LAA 8; HOU 7; OAK, TEX 6; SEA 2).
This is Danny Valencia's 2nd ejection of 2016, 1st since August 5 (Mike Estabrook; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
This is Marty Foster's first ejection since July 30, 2016 (David Freese; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
