MLB Ejection 042: Jerry Layne (1; Joe Girardi)

HP Umpire Jerry Layne ejected Yankees Manager Joe Girardi for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Mets-Yankees game. With two out and two on, Yankees batter Kelly Johnson took a 0-2 cutter from Mets pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and belt-high (px -1.198, pz 2.469), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Mets were leading, 11-5. The Mets ultimately won the contest, 12-7.

This is Jerry Layne (24)'s first ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Jerry Layne now has -2 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = -2).
