MLB Ejection 160: Cory Blaser (2; Steve McCatty)

HP Umpire Cory Blaser ejected Nationals Pitching Coach Steve McCatty for arguing ball calls in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the Nationals-Giants game. With none out and one on, Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez walked Giants batters Hector Sanchez and Jake Peavy. Replays indicate all nine pitches ruled 'ball' by Blaser to Sanchez, Peavy and preceding batter Kelby Tomlinson were correctly officiated (100% Accuracy), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Nationals were leading, 2-0. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 12-6.

This is Cory Blaser (89)'s second ejection of 2015.
Cory Blaser now has -1 points in the UEFL Standings (-5 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = -1).
Crew Chief Jeff Nelson now has 4 points in Crew Division (3 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 4).

This is the 160th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the Nationals' 7th ejection of 2015, 1st in the NL East (WAS 7; NYM, PHI 4; ATL 3; MIA 2).
This is Steve McCatty's first ejection since August 3, 1984 (Larry Young; QOC = U [Balls/Strikes]).
This is Cory Blaser's first ejection since June 14, 2015 (Clint Hurdle; QOC = N [Balls/Strikes]).

Wrap: Washington Nationals vs. San Francisco Giants, 8/15/15
