MLB Ejection 007 - Dan Bellino (1; Matt Wieters)

HP Umpire Dan Bellino ejected Orioles C Matt Wieters for arguing a strike three (check swing) call in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Blue Jays-Orioles game. With two out and two on, Wieters attempted to check his swing on a 0-2 changeup from Blue Jays pitcher Marco Estrada. Play reviewed and affirmed as correct by the UEFL Appeals Board (check swing). At the time of the ejection, the Blue Jays were leading, 2-1. The Orioles ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

This is Dan Bellino (2)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Dan Bellino now has 6 points in the UEFL Standings (2 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 6).
