MLB Ejection 122: Marty Foster (4; Victor Martinez)

HP Umpire Marty Foster ejected Tigers DH Victor Martinez for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 5th inning of the Tigers-Twins game. With one out and one on, Martinez took a 2-2 knuckle curve from Twins pitcher Phil Hughes for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and midpoint high (px -.961, pz 3.049 [sz_top 3.360]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Twins were leading, 7-4. The Twins ultimately won the contest, 9-5.

This is Marty Foster (60)'s fourth ejection of 2015.
Marty Foster now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = 4).
Crew Chief Mike Winters now has 10 points in Crew Division (10 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 10).

This is the 122nd ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 58th player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Martinez was 0-2 (SO) in the contest.
This is the Tigers' 4th ejection of 2015, T-3rd in the AL Central (KC 10; CWS 5; CLE, DET 4; MIN 2).
This is Victor Martinez's first ejection since September 19, 2008 (Jerry Layne; QOC = U [Fighting]).
This is Marty Foster's first ejection since May 31, 2015 (Justin Turner; QOC = N [Balls/Strikes]).
