MLB Ejection 060 - DJ Reyburn (1; Rick Schu)

HP Umpire DJ Reyburn ejected Nationals Hitting Coach Rick Schu for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Mets-Nationals game. With none out and none on, Nationals batter Chris Heisey took a 0-2 sinker from Mets pitcher Steven Matz for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and below the midpoint (px .685, pz 3.453 [sz_top 3.620]) and that all other pitches during the at bat had been properly officiated, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection the Mets were leading, 1-0. The Mets ultimately won the contest, 2-0.

This is DJ Reyburn (70)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
DJ Reyburn now has 12 points in the UEFL Standings (8 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 12).
Crew Chief John Hirschbeck now has 11 points in Crew Division (10 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 11).

This is the 60th ejection report of the 2016 regular season.
This is Washington's 2nd ejection of 2016, T-2nd in the NL East (MIA 3; NYM, WAS 2; ATL 1; PHI 0).
This is Rick Schu's first career MLB ejection.
This is DJ Reyburn's first ejection since August 2, 2015 (Clint Hurdle; QOC = U [Argued Ejection]).
