MLB Ejection 015: John Tumpane (1; Angel Pagan)

HP Umpire John Tumpane ejected Giants CF Angel Pagan for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 7th inning of the Giants-Rockies game. With one out and one on, Pagan took a 1-2 wilder from Rockies pitcher Tommy Kahnle for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and above the midpoint between the top of the uniform pants and shoulders (px .414, pz 3.369 / sz_top 3.210, MOE sz_top 3.293), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Rockies were leading, 7-1. The Rockies ultimately won the contest, 8-2.

This is John Tumpane (74)'s first ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
John Tumpane now has -3 points in the UEFL (-1 Previous + 3 AAA - 1 Penalty - 4 Incorrect = -3).
Crew Chief Bob Davidson now has 1 points in the UEFL's Crew Division (1 Prev + 0 Incorrect = 1).

This is the 15th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 9th player ejection of 2014. Prior to ejection, Pagan was 1-3 in the contest.
This is the Giants' 1st ejection of 2014, T-1st in the NL West (SD, SF 1; ARI, COL, LAD 0).
This is Angel Pagan's first ejection since July 21, 2012 (Mike Everitt; QOC = N).
This is John Tumpane's first ejection since May 12, 2013 (Kurt Suzuki; QOC = N).

Wrap: San Francisco Giants vs. Colorado Rockies, 4/21/14

The thing I hate most, is ball/strike ejections. I like almost every type of ejection because it's usually a show, and I'm an umpire and they're entertaining, but now, with replay, there only have been ejections from ball/strikes. (I know, I know, there have been a few arguing the replays, but for the most part.)
