MLB Ejection 167: Ben May (2; Chris Coghlan)

HP Umpire Ben May ejected Cubs LF Chris Coghlan for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 5th inning of the Cubs-Reds game. With one out and none on, Coghlan took a 0-2 fastball from Reds pitcher Dylen Axelrod for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and thigh high (px .096, pz 1.636 / sz_bot 1.520) while the first two strikes of the at bat were foul balls, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Reds were leading, 6-0. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 7-2.

This is Ben May (97)'s second ejection of the 2014 season.
Ben May now has 2 points in the UEFL Standings (-3 Prev + 3 AAA + 2 Correct Call = 2).

This is the 167th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 70th player ejection of 2014. Prior to ejection, Coghlan was 0-2 in the contest.
This is the Cubs' 8th ejection of 2014, T-1st in the NL Central (CHC, PIT 8; MIL, STL 5; CIN 3).
