MLB Ejection 155: Lance Barrett (2; Jeff Banister)

HP Umpire Lance Barrett ejected Rangers Manager Jeff Banister for arguing a strike one call in the top of the 8th inning of the Rangers-Mariners game. With one out and one on, Rangers batter Mitch Moreland took a 0-0 fastball from Mariners pitcher Fernando Rodney 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 .008, pz 1.425 [sz_bot 1.73]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Mariners were leading, 4-2. The Mariners ultimately won the contest, 4-2.

This is Lance Barrett (94)'s second ejection of 2015.
Lance Barrett now has 0 points in the UEFL Standings (2 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = 0).
Crew Chief Dale Scott now has 5 points in Crew Division (5 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 5).

This is the 155th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 71st Manager ejection of 2015.
This is the Rangers' 3rd ejection of 2015, T-3rd in the AL West (SEA 5; HOU; LAA, OAK, TEX 3)

This is Lance Barrett's first ejection since April 22, 2015 (Dave Hudgens; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
