MLB Ejection 181: Sam Holbrook (8; Colby Rasmus)

HP Umpire Sam Holbrook ejected Astros LF Colby Rasmus for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 5th inning of the Astros-Yankees game. With one out and two on, Rasmus took a 3-2 fastball from Yankees pitcher Chasen Shreve for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px -1.101, pz 1.519 [sz_bot 1.660 / MOE 1.577]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 5-0. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 6-2.

This is Sam Holbrook (34)'s eighth ejection of 2015.
Sam Holbrook now has 22 points in the UEFL Standings (24 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = 22).
Crew Chief Eric Cooper now has 4 points in Crew Division (4 Prev + 0 Incorrect Call = 4).

This is the 181st ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 80th player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Rasmus was 1-3 (2 SO) in the contest.
This is the Astros' 6th ejection of 2015, T-1st in the AL West (HOU, SEA 6; TEX 5; OAK 4; LAA 3).
This is Colby Rasmus' first career MLB ejection.
This is Sam Holbrook's first ejection since July 2, 2015 (Brad Ausmus; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).

Wrap: Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees, 8/26/15
