MLB Ejection 029: Marty Foster (1; Matt Kemp)

HP Umpire Marty Foster ejected Padres RF Matt Kemp for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Dodgers-Padres game. With two out and none on, Kemp took a 3-2 fastball from Dodgers pitcher Juan Nicasio for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and at the knees (px -0.261, pz 1.636 [sz_bot 1.680 / MOE 1.597]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Dodgers were leading, 10-7. The Dodgers ultimately won the contest, 11-8.

This is Marty Foster (60)'s first ejection of 2015.
Marty Foster now has 5 points in the UEFL Standings (1 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 5).
Crew Chief Mike Winters now has 3 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 1 Correct = 3).

This is the 29th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 15th player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Kemp was 2-4 in the contest.
This is the Padres' 4th ejection of 2015, 1st in the NL West (SD 4; SF 1; ARI, COL, LAD 0).
This is Marty Foster's first ejection since Sept 20, 2014 (Ron Roenicke; QOC = U [Throwing At]).
This is Matt Kemp's first ejection since August 7, 2014 (Brian Knight; QOC = Y [Check Swing]).
