MLB Ejection 016: Chris Conroy (1; Bruce Bochy)

HP Umpire Chris Conroy ejected Giants Manager Bruce Bochy for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 4th inning of the Giants-Rockies game. With one out and one on, Giants batter Brandon Hicks took a 3-2 slider from Rockies pitcher Tyler Chatwood for a called third strike after which catcher Wilin Rosario threw to second baseman DJ LeMahieu, who tagged Giants baserunner R1 Brandon Crawford, resulting in an inning-ending double play. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and knee high (px 0.20, pz 1.736 / sz_bot 1.540), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the contest was tied, 5-5. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 12-10, in 11 innings.

This is Chris Conroy (98)'s first ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Chris Conroy now has 3 points in the UEFL Standings (-1 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct = 3).
Crew Chief Jim Joyce now has -1 points in the UEFL's Crew Division (-2 Prev + 1 Correct = -1).

This is the 16th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 4th Manager ejection of 2014.
This is the Giants' 2nd ejection of 2014, 1st in the NL West (SF 2; SD 1; ARI, COL, LAD 0).
This is Bruce Bochy's first ejection since June 11, 2013 (Wally Bell; QOC = U [Throwing At]).
This is Chris Conroy's first ejection since April 28, 2013 (DeMarlo Hale; QOC = U [Time Delay]).

Gerry Davis has ejected Michael Pineda for having pine tar on his neck

This ejection is on Willin Resario and the fact he is terrible at recieving pitches!

Lindsay said...

That is why the pro boys make the big bucks! Great call on a nasty pitch!

Lindsay said...

It looked low the way it was caught. But, who can argue with PFX numbers?

It also looked like Bochy was out there to protect Hicks and then added an editorial comment to the umpire.

CC was Bob Davidson, not Jim Joyce
