MLB Ejection 054 - Adrian Johnson (1; Kevin Long)

HP Umpire Adrian Johnson ejected Mets Hitting Coach Kevin Long for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Brewers-Mets game. With none out and none on, Mets batter David Wright took a 2-2 fastball from Brewers pitcher Zach Davies for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner edge of home plate and belt high (px .822, pz 2.449), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Brewers were leading, 4-2. The Mets ultimately won the contest, 5-4.

This is Adrian Johnson (80)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Adrian Johnson now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
