MLB Ejection 128: David Rackley (2; Bryan Price)

HP Umpire David Rackley ejected Reds Manager Bryan Price for arguing a strike three swinging (check swing) call in the top of the 6th inning of the Reds-Brewers. With one out and one on, Reds batter Devin Mesoraco attempted to check his swing on a 1-2 slider from Brewers pitcher Wily Peralta. Replays indicate Mesoraco attempted to strike the pitch, the call was correct, pursuant to the UEFL Appeals Board's adoption of a highly-deferential abuse of discretion standard, as opined by JD, in re: R-145 Barksdale 1. At the time of the ejection, the Brewers were leading, 5-1. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 5-2.

This is David Rackley (86)'s second ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
David Rackley now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Brian Gorman now has 8 points in Crew Division (7 Prev + 1 Correct Call = 8).

This is the 128th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 56th Manager ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the Reds' 3rd ejection of 2014, T-4th in the NL Central (CHC 7; PIT 6; MIL 4; CIN, STL 3).
This is Bryan Price's first ejection since April 27, 2014 (Bill Miller; QOC = Y [Replay Review]).
This is David Rackley's first ejection since July 12, 2014 (Yasiel Puig; QOC = N [Balls/Strikes]).
