MLB Ejection 164: Doug Eddings (2; Bruce Bochy)

HP Umpire Doug Eddings ejected Giants Manager Bruce Bochy for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Rockies-Giants game. With none out and one on, Giants batter Buster Posey took a 2-2 fastball from Rockies pitcher Adam Ottavino for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and below the hollow of the knees (px .312, pz 1.477 / sz_bot 1.58 [MOE 1.497]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Rockies were leading, 3-2. The Rockies ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

This is Doug Eddings (88)'s second ejection of 2014.
Doug Eddings now has 1 point in the UEFL Standings (3 Prev + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = 1).
Crew Chief Jim Joyce now has -3 points in Crew Division (-3 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = -3).

This is the 164th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 79th Manager ejection of 2014.
This is the Giants' 7th ejection of 2014, T-1st in the NL West (COL, LAD, SF 7; ARI 5; SD 3).
