MLB Ejection 010 - Sean Barber (1; Melvin Upton Jr)

HP Umpire Sean Barber ejected Padres LF Melvin Upton Jr for arguing a strike two call in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Cardinals-Padres game. With two out and none on, Upton Jr took two fastballs from Cardinals pitcher Kevin Siegrist for called first and second strikes, before striking out on a later pitch. Replays indicate the first and second strikes were located over the inner edge of home plate and thigh high (px1 -.888, pz1 2.408; px2 -.811, pz2 1.848 [sz_bot 1.650]), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 5-5. The Cardinals ultimately won the contest, 8-5.

This is Sean Barber (29)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Sean Barber now has 5 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 3 AAA + 2 Correct Call = 5).
Crew Chief Mike Everitt now has 2 points in Crew Division (1 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 2).
*QOC would be incorrect had px been greater than |.916|.

This is the 10th ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
This is the 6th player ejection of 2016. Prior to ejection, Upton Jr was 1-4 (SO) in the contest.
This is the Padres' 2nd ejection of 2016, 1st in the NL West (SD 2; ARI, LAD 1; COL, SF 0).
