MLB Ejection 062: Kerwin Danley (1; Ned Yost)

HP Umpire Kerwin Danley ejected Royals Manager Ned Yost for arguing balls and strikes in the top of the 6th inning of the Astros-Royals game. With two out and two on, Astros batter Alex Presley hit a 0-0 curveball from Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie on a line drive to right fielder Nori Aoki. Replays indicate that all pitches to prior batters during the inning that were ruled "ball" (0-0 fastball to Jason Castro, 0-1 changeup to Matt Dominguez, 0-0 curveball and 1-2 changeup to Robbie Grossman) were properly officiated, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 1-0. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 3-0.

This is Kerwin Danley (44)'s first ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Kerwin Danley now has 1 point in the UEFL Standings (-3 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 1).
Crew Chief Gary Cederstrom now has -1 points in UEFL's Crew Division (-2 Prev + 1 Correct = -1).

This is the 62nd ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 25th Manager ejection of 2014.
This is the Royals' 3rd ejection of 2014, 1st in the AL Central (KC 3; CWS, DET 2; CLE, MIN 1).
This is Ned Yost's first ejection since May 17, 2014 (Chris Segal; QOC = N [Foul/HBP {Foul IC}]).
This is Kerwin Danley's first ejection since June 16, 2012 (Mike Matheny; QOC = Y [Safe/Out]).
