MLB Ejection 143: Ben May (1; Terry Collins)

HP Umpire Ben May ejected Mets Manager Terry Collins for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Giants-Mets game. With two out and none on, Mets batter Lucas Duda took a 3-2 fastball from Giants pitcher Javier Lopez for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px .347, pz 1.42 / sz_bot 1.86), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 3-3. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 4-3.

This is Ben May (97)'s first ejection of the 2014 season.
Ben May now has -2 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 3 AAA - 1 Penalty - 4 Incorrect Call = -2).
Crew Chief Brian O'Nora now has 1 point in the Crew Division (1 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 1).

This is the 143rd ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 66th Manager ejection of 2014.
This is the Mets' 6th ejection of 2014, T-1st in the NL East (ATL, NYM, PHI 6; MIA 5; WAS 1).
This is Terry Collins' first ejection since June 11, 2014 (Gary Cederstrom; QOC = U [Replay Review]).
This is Ben May's first career MLB ejection.
