MLB Ejection 037: Bill Miller (1; Walt Weiss)

HP Umpire Bill Miller ejected Rockies Manager Walt Weiss for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the Diamondbacks-Rockies game. With one out and none on, Rockies batter Jordan Lyles took a 0-2 fastball from Diamondbacks pitcher Robbie Ray for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and below the midpoint (px -0.373, pz 3.409 [sz_top 3.420]), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Diamondbacks ultimately won the contest, 5-1.

This is Bill Miller (26)'s first ejection of 2015.
Bill Miller now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Bill Miller now has 2 points in Crew Division (1 Prev + 1 Correct Call = 2).
*This call is correct pursuant to UEFL Rule 6-2-b-4 pertaining to three-pitch strikeout at-bats.

This is the 37th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 16th Manager ejection of 2015.
This is the Rockies' 1st ejection of 2015, T-2nd in the NL West (SD 4; COL, LA, SF 1; ARI 0).
