MLB Ejection 161: Doug Eddings (3; Ian Kinsler)

HP Umpire Doug Eddings ejected Tigers 2B Ian Kinsler for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 7th inning of the Tigers-Astros game. With one out and one on, Tigers batter Jose Iglesias took a 2-2 sinker from Astros pitcher Chad Qualls for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and knee high (px -.129, pz 1.713 [sz_bot 1.46]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 5-4. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 6-5.

This is Doug Eddings (88)'s third ejection of 2015.
Doug Eddings now has 7 points in the UEFL Standings (3 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 7).
Crew Chief Bill Miller now has 10 points in Crew Division (9 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 10).

This is the 161st ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 72nd player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Kindler was 0-4 (SO) in the contest.
This is the Tigers' 6th ejection of 2015, T-2nd in the AL Central (KC 10; CWS, DET 6; CLE 5; MIN 3).
