MLB Ejection 030: Quinn Wolcott (1; Bob Melvin)

HP Umpire Quinn Wolcott ejected Oakland Athletics Manager Bob Melvin for arguing a ball three call in the top of the 4th inning of the Astros-Athletics game. With none out and none on, Astros batter Jason Castro took a 2-2 fastball from A's pitcher Drew Pomeranz for a called third ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and waist high (px -1.069, pz 1.997), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 3-2. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 7-6.

This is Quinn Wolcott (81)'s first ejection of 2015.
Quinn Wolcott now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Gary Cederstrom now has 0 points in Crew Division (-1 Previous + 1 Correct = 0).

This is the 30th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 12th Manager ejection of 2015.
This is the Athletics' 1st ejection of 2015, T-1st in the AL West (HOU, LAA, OAK 1; SEA, TEX 0).
