MLB Ejection 020: Angel Hernandez (1; Matt Kemp)

HP Umpire Angel Hernandez ejected Dodgers CF Matt Kemp for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Rockies-Dodgers game. With none out and none on, Kemp took a 1-2 fastball from Rockies pitcher Boone Logan for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and thigh high (px 1.186, pz 2.977 / sz_bot 1.78), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the contest was tied, 2-2. The Rockies ultimately won the contest, 5-4, in 11 innings.

This is Angel Hernandez (55)'s first ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Angel Hernandez now has -1 points in the UEFL (1 Previous + 2 MLB + -4 Incorrect Call = -1).
Larry Vanover now has -1 points in the UEFL's Crew Division (-1 Previous + 0 Incorrect = -1).

This is the 20th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 9th player ejection of 2014. Prior to ejection, Kemp was 0-3 in the contest.
This is Matt Kemp's first ejection since April 11, 2013 (Sam Holbrook; QOC = U [Fighting]).
This is Angel Hernandez's first ejection since September 23, 2013 (Fredi Gonzalez; QOC = Y).
