MLB Ejection 198: Jeff Nelson (6; Yoenis Cespedes)

HP Umpire Jeff Nelson ejected Red Sox LF Yoenis Cespedes for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Rays-Red Sox game. With two out and one on, Red Sox batter Cespedes took a 1-2 curveball from Rays pitcher Grant Balfour for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and thigh high (px .103, pz 2.053), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Rays were leading, 5-2. The Rays ultimately won the contest, 6-2.

This is Jeff Nelson (45)'s sixth ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Jeff Nelson now has 17 points in the UEFL Standings (19 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = 17).
Crew Chief Jeff Nelson now has 11 points in Crew Division (11 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 11).

This is the 198th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 85th player ejection of 2014. Prior to his ejection, Cespedes was 1-4 in the contest.
This is the Red Sox's 14th ejection of 2014, 1st in the AL East (BOS 14: NYY 12; TB 11; TOR 5; BAL 3).
This is Yoenis Cespedes' first career MLB ejection.
This is Jeff Nelson's first ejection since September 8, 2014 (Lloyd McClendon; QOC = Y [Replay Review]).
