MLB Ejection 182: Alan Porter (2; Francisco Cervelli)

HP Umpire Alan Porter ejected Pirates C Francisco Cervelli for arguing a ball two call in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the Pirates-Marlins game. With none out and none on, Marlins batter Jeff Mathis took a 1-0 fastball from Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole for a called second ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and knee high (px 0.861, pz 1.642 [sz_bot 1.350]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Pirates were leading, 1-0. The Pirates ultimately won the contest, 2-1.

This is Alan Porter (64)'s second ejection of 2015.
Alan Porter now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Jeff Kellogg now has 4 points in Crew Division (3 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 4).

This is the 182nd ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 81st player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Cervelli was 1-2 in the contest.
This is the Pirates' 8th ejection of 2015, 1st in the NL Central (PIT 8; CIN 7; CHC, MIL, STL 6).
This is Francisco Cervelli's 2nd ejection of 2015, 1st since July 11 (Vic Carapazza; QOC = N [Balls/Strikes]).
This is Alan Porter's first ejection since June 24, 2015 (Joe Girardi; QOC = N [Check Swing]).
