MLB Ejection 183: John Hirschbeck (5; Pablo Sandoval)

HP Umpire John Hirschbeck ejected Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval for arguing a fair ball call in the top of the 8th inning of the Red Sox-Mets game. With one out and none on, Sandoval hit a 1-2 splitter from Mets pitcher Tyler Clippard on the ground near home plate, fielded by catcher Travis d'Arnaud. Replays indicate d'Arnaud first touched the baseball while it was in fair territory, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 3-3. The Red Sox ultimately won the contest, 6-4, in 10 innings.

This is John Hirschbeck (17)'s fifth ejection of 2015.
John Hirschbeck now has 7 points in the UEFL Standings (3 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 7).
