MLB Ejection 152: David Rackley (2; Dan Jennings)

HP Umpire David Rackley ejected Marlins Manager Dan Jennings for arguing a check swing call made by 1B Umpire Hunter Wendelstedt in the top of the 9th inning of the Marlins-Braves game. With one out and one on, Marlins batter Adeiny Hechavarria attempted to check his swing on a 0-2 slider from Braves pitcher Arodys Vizcaino for a swinging third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located within the bounds of the strike zone (px -.163, pz 1.545 [sz_bot 1.43]), the call was correct pursuant to UEFL 6-2-b-6-a (Quality of Correctness is governed by the (in)correctness of the call made, not by the quality of reasoning given for such a call). At the time of the ejection, the Braves were leading, 6-3. The Braves ultimately won the contest, 6-3.

This is David Rackley (86)'s second ejection of 2015.
David Rackley now has 6 points in the UEFL Standings (3 Previous + 2 MLB + 1 Correct-Crewmate = 6).
Crew Chief Hunter Wendelstedt now has 10 points in Crew Division (9 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 10).

This is the 152nd ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.

This is the Marlins' 2nd ejection of 2015, 5th in the NL East (WAS 6; NYM 4; ATL, PHI 3; MIA 2).
