MLB Ejections 176-177 - Alfonso Marquez (1-2; COL)

HP Umpire Alfonso Marquez ejected Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado and Manager Walt Weiss for arguing a called third strike in the top of the 8th inning of the Rockies-Dodgers game. With none out and one on, Arenado took a 3-2 slider from Dodgers pitcher Joe Blanton for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and above the midpoint (px -.223, pz 3.785 [sz_top 3.420 / MOE 3.503]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Dodgers were leading, 7-4. The Dodgers ultimately won the contest, 7-4.

This is Alfonso Marquez (72)'s first, second ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Alfonso Marquez now has 2 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Previous + 2*[2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call] = 2).
