Ejection 124: Tim Tschida (5)

1B Umpire Tim Tschida ejected Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly for arguing a strike call in the top of the 2nd inning of the Dodgers-Pirates game. With none out and none on, Dodgers batter Andre Ethier took a 1-1 fastball from Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett for a called second strike by HP Umpire Angel Campos. Replays indicate the pitch was located below the midpoint between the top of the shoulders and the top of the uniform pants high and over the outside portion of the plate, the call was correct (px value of -0.464; norm_ht value of 0.5538). At the time of the ejection, the Pirates were leading 3-0.

This is Tim Tschida (4)'s fifth ejection of 2012.
Tim Tschida now has 13 points in the UEFL (10 Previous + 2 MLB + 1 Correct Call [Crewmmate] = 13).
Crew Chief Tim Tschida now has 7 points in the UEFL's Crew division (6 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 7).
*The call is correct pursuant to both the Miller and Kulpa rules.
