MLB Ejection 002 - Jeff Kellogg (1; Dave Roberts)

HP Umpire Jeff Kellogg ejected Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts for arguing a ball one call in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Dodgers-Giants game. With one out and one on, Giants batter Trevor Brown took three consecutive pitches from Dodgers pitcher Chris Hatcher for called balls before hitting a home run on a 3-0 count; immediately thereafter, Ehire Adrianza walked on five pitches (four balls, one foul) and Denard Span took a first-pitch fastball for a called first ball. Replays indicate all eight callable pitches to Brown, Adrianza, and Span ruled as balls were located out of the strike zone (8/8; 100% Accuracy) with the pitch to Span located off the outer edge of home plate and thigh high (px -1.136, pz 2.005), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 2-2. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 3-2, in 10 innings.

This is Jeff Kellogg (8)'s first ejection of 2016.
Jeff Kellogg now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Jeff Kellogg now has 2 points in Crew Division (1 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 2).
