MLB Ejection 105: Mark Wegner (1; Matt Williams)

HP Umpire Mark Wegner ejected Nationals Manager Matt Williams for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 2nd inning of the Nationals-Brewers game. With none out and three on, Nationals batter Danny Espinosa took a 3-2 fastball from Brewers pitcher Matt Garza for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and belt-high (px -1.025, pz 2.616), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 3-0.
