MLB Ejections 051-052: Hudson (1-2; Harper, Williams)

HP Umpire Marvin Hudson ejected Nationals RF Bryce Harper and Manager Matt Williams for arguing a strike one call in the top of the 3rd inning of the Yankees-Nationals game. With two out and none on, Harper took a 0-0 slider from Yankees pitcher Adam Warren for a called first strike. Replays indicate the pitch was over the inner half of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px .252, pz 1.418 [sz_bot 1.610 / MOE 1.527]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejections, the Yankees were leading, 2-1. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

These are Marvin Hudson (51)'s first and second ejections of 2015.
Marvin Hudson now has -4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2*[2 MLB - 4 Incorrect] = -4).
Crew Chief Jim Joyce now has 2 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 2).
