MLB Ejection 127: Chad Fairchild (1; Terry Collins)

HP Umpire Chad Fairchild ejected Mets Manager Terry Collins for arguing a strike one call in the top of the 7th inning of the Mets-Cardinals game. With none out and none on, Mets batter Lucas Duda took a 3-0 fastball from Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn for a called first strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px .002, pz 1.509 [sz_bot 1.760]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Cardinals were leading, 2-1. The Cardinals ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

This is Chad Fairchild (4)'s first ejection of 2015.
Chad Fairchild now has -4 points in the UEFL Standings (-2 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect = -4).
Crew Chief Greg Gibson now has 9 points in Crew Division (9 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 9).

This is the 127th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 57th Manager ejection of 2015.
This is the Mets' 4th ejection of 2015, 2nd in the NL East (WAS 5; NYM 4; ATL, PHI 3; MIA 1).
