MLB Ejection 134: Hunter Wendelstedt (2; Bob Melvin)

HP Umpire Hunter Wendelstedt ejected Athletics Manager Bob Melvin for arguing a strike one call in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Blue Jays-Athletics game. With one out and one on, A's batter Stephen Vogt took a first-pitch fastball from Blue Jays pitcher for a called first strike as A's baserunner Billy Burns attempted to steal second base off Blue Jays catcher Russell Martin. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and thigh high (px .277, pz 2.608), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 1-1. The Athletics ultimately won the contest, 4-3.
