MLB Ejections 116-117: Phil Cuzzi (3-4; Vogelsong, Bochy)

HP Umpire Phil Cuzzi ejected Giants P Ryan Vogelsong and Manager Bruce Bochy for arguing a ball two call in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Giants-Nationals game. With none out and none on, Nationals batter Denard Span took a 1-2 slider for a called second ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px -.253, pz 1.289 [sz_bot 1.530]) and that all other preceding pitches during the inning were properly officiated, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 1-1. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 3-1.

These are Phil Cuzzi (10)'s 3rd and 4th ejections of 2015.
Phil Cuzzi now has 8 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2*[2 MLB + 2 Correct Call] = 8).
Crew Chief Gerry Davis now has 2 points in Crew Division (0 Previous + 2 Correct Call = 2).

These are the 116th and 117th ejections of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
