MLB Ejection 186: Paul Nauert (1; Matt Joyce)

HP Umpire Paul Nauert ejected Rays LF Matt Joyce for arguing a strike two call in the top of the 9th inning of the Rays-Blue Jays game. With one out and none on, Joyce took a 1-1 cutter from Blue Jays pitcher Casey Janssen for a called second strike before striking out on the following changeup. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the inner edge of home plate and thigh high (px .936, pz 1.813), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Blue Jays were leading, 6-3. The Blue Jays ultimately won the contest, 6-3.

This is Paul Nauert (39)'s first ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Paul Nauert now has 1 point in the UEFL Standings (3 Prev + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = 1).
Crew Chief Tom Hallion now has 19 points in Crew Division (19 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 19).

This is the 186th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 79th player ejection of 2014. Prior to ejection, Joyce was 0-4 in the contest.
This is the Rays' 11th ejection of 2014, 2nd in the AL East (BOS 13; TB 11; NYY 8; TOR 5; BAL 3).
This is Matt Joyce's first ejection since September 16, 2012 (Paul Emmel; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
This is Paul Nauert's first ejection since September 25, 2013 (Carlos Gomez; QOC = U [Fighting]).
