MLB Ejection 086: Cory Blaser (1; Clint Hurdle)

HP Umpire Cory Blaser ejected Pirates Manager Clint Hurdle for arguing a strike one call in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Phillies-Pirates game. With two out and two on, Pirates batter Pedro Alvarez took a 0-0 fastball from Phillies pitcher Luis Garcia for a called first strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and below of the hollow of the knee (px .294, pz 1.282 [sz_bot 1.54 / MOE 1.46]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Pirates ultimately won the contest, 1-0, in 11 innings.

This is Cory Blaser (89)'s first ejection of 2015.
Cory Blaser now has 0 points in the UEFL Standings (2 Prev + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = 0).
Crew Chief Jeff Nelson now has 7 points in Crew Division (7 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 7).
