MLB Ejection 154: Tony Randazzo (1; Lloyd McClendon)

HP Umpire Tony Randazzo ejected Mariners Manager Lloyd McClendon for arguing ball two and three calls in the bottom of the 2nd inning of the Mariners-Tigers game. With one out and two on, Tigers batter Eugenio Suarez took a 1-2 changeup and 2-2 slider from Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez for called second and third balls. Replays indicate the pitches were located over the outer edge of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (ball two; px .729, pz 1.307 / sz_bot 1.540) and off the outer edge of home plate and thigh high (px .920, pz 2.451), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Tigers ultimately won the contest, 4-2.

This is Tony Randazzo (11)'s first ejection of 2014.
Tony Randazzo now has 1 point in the UEFL Standings (-3 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 1).
