MLB Ejection 010: Paul Nauert (1; Collin Cowgill)

HP Umpire Paul Nauert ejected Angels LF Collin Cowgill for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 7th inning of the Angels-Astros game. With two out and none on, Cowgirl took a 2-2 sinker from Astros pitcher Chad Qualls for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and navel-high (px 0.231, pz 3.097 [sz_top 3.2]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 1-0. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 4-0.

This is Paul Nauert (39)'s first ejection of 2015.
Paul Nauert now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Dana DeMuth now has 2 points in Crew Division (1 Prev + 1 Correct = 2).

This is the 10th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 4th player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Cowgirl was 0-3 in the contest.
This is the Angels' first ejection of 2015, 1st in the AL West (LAA 1; HOU, OAK, SEA, TEX 0).
