MLB Ejections 069-070: Joe West (2-3; Holliday, Matheny)

HP Umpire Joe West ejected Cardinals LF Matt Holliday and Manager Mike Matheny for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Brewers-Cardinals game. With none out and one on, Holliday took a 1-2 cutter from Brewers pitcher Tyler Cravy for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the inner edge of home plate and thigh-high (px -1.096, pz 2.587), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejections, the Cardinals were leading, 1-0. The Cardinals ultimately won the contest, 1-0.

These are Joe West (22)'s second and third ejections of 2015.
Joe West now has 0 points in the UEFL Standings (4 Previous + 2*[2 MLB - 4 Incorrect] = 0).
Crew Chief Joe West now has 9 points in Crew Division (9 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 9).

These are the 69th and 70th ejections of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 34th player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Holliday was 0-3 (SO) in the contest.
This is the 30th Manager ejection of 2015.
This is the Cardinals' 1/2nd ejection of 2015, T-3rd in the NL Central (CIN, MIL 3; CHC, STL 2; PIT 1).
