MLB Ejection 149: CB Bucknor (1; Mike Napoli)

HP Umpire CB Bucknor ejected Red Sox DH Mike Napoli for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 8th inning of the Red Sox-Angels game. With one out and none on, Napoli took a 1-2 slider from Angels pitcher Joe Smith for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and thigh high (px 0.48, pz 2.54) while the prior two strikes in the at-bat were both foul balls, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Red Sox were leading, 3-0. The Red Sox ultimately won the contest, 3-1.

This is CB Bucknor (54)'s first ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
CB Bucknor now has 2 points in the UEFL Standings (-2 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 2).
Crew Chief Dale Scott now has 4 points in Crew Division (3 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 4).

This is the 149th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 63rd player ejection of 2014. Prior to ejection, Napoli was 0-2 in the contest.
This is the Red Sox's 11th ejection of 2014, 1st in the AL East (BOS 11; TB 10; NYY 6; TOR 4; BAL 2).
This is Mike Napoli's first ejection since September 15, 2013 (Ron Kulpa; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
This is CB Bucknor's first ejection since September 18, 2013 (Alex Wood; QOC = U [USC-DiMuro]).
