MLB Ejection 008: Sam Holbrook (1; Joe Maddon)

HP Umpire Sam Holbrook ejected Cubs Manager Joe Maddon for arguing a ball one call in the top of the 7th inning of the Padres-Cubs game. With two out and two on, Padres batter Will Myers took a 0-2 fastball from Cubs pitcher Brian Schlitter for a called first ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and near the hollow of the knee (px 0.235, pz 1.645 [sz_bot 1.600 / MOE 1.683]), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Padres were leading, 5-4. The Padres ultimately won the contest, 5-4.

This is Sam Holbrook (34)'s first ejection of 2015.
Sam Holbrook now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct = 4).
Crew Chief John Hirschbeck now has 0 points in Crew Division (-1 Prev + 1 Correct = 0).
*This call is correct pursuant to PFX margin-of-error regulations, UEFL Rule 6-2-b-2 (Miller Rule).

This is the 8th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 6th Manager ejection of 2015.
