WBC Ejections Q1-2 - Alberto Ruiz (1-2; Team GB)

HP Umpire Alberto Ruiz ejected Great Britain CF Champ Stuart and Manager Liam Carroll for arguing a strike two call in the top of the 7th inning of the Great Britain-Israel game (World Baseball Classic Qualifier: Final Game). With one out and one on, Stuart took a 1-1 fastball from Team Israel pitcher Josh Zeid for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and thigh high (pfx n/a), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, Team Israel was leading, 5-0. Team Israel ultimately won the contest—and, accordingly, won the Brooklyn qualifying stage of the World Baseball Classic—9-1.

These are Alberto Ruiz's first and second ejections of the 2016 WBC Qualifier.
