MLB Ejection 150: Jeff Nelson (4; Buck Showalter)

2B Umpire Jeff Nelson ejected Orioles Manager Buck Showalter for arguing a Replay Review decision that overturned Nelson's out (transfer) call in the top of the 7th inning of the Cardinals-Orioles game. With one out and one on, Cardinals batter Jon Jay hit a 0-0 fastball from Orioles pitcher T.J. McFarland on the ground to shortstop Ryan Flaherty, who threw to second baseman Jonathan Schoop as Cardinals baserunner Jhonny Peralta slid into second base. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny, Nelson's ruling was reversed; replays indicate Schoop did not legally tag second base while in possession of the ball, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Cardinals were leading, 4-3. The Cardinals ultimately won the contest, 8-3.

This is Jeff Nelson (45)'s fourth ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Jeff Nelson now has 12 points in the UEFL Standings (8 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 12).
Crew Chief Jeff Nelson now has 9 points in Crew Division (8 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 9).

This is the 150th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 70th Manager ejection of 2014.
This is the Orioles' 3rd ejection of 2014, 5th in the AL East (BOS 11; TB 10; NYY 6; TOR 4; BAL 3).
This is Buck Showalter's first ejection since August 4, 2013 (Larry Vanover; QOC = N [Balls/Strikes]).
This is Jeff Nelson's first ejection since July 22, 2014 (Clint Hurdle; QOC = U [Unsportsmanlike-NEC]).
