MLB Ejections 028|029 - Ben May, Jeff Nelson (1, 1; HOU)

HP Umpire Ben May ejected Astros Manager AJ Hinch for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 8th and 1B Umpire Jeff Nelson ejected Astros CF Carlos Gomez for arguing balls and strikes prior to the 10th inning of the Mariners-Astros game. In the 8th, with none out and none on, Astros batter Carlos Correa took a 3-2 slider from Mariners pitcher Nick Vincent for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px .31, pz 1.54 [sz_bot 1.7 / MOE 1.6]), the call was incorrect. With one out in the 9th, Astros batter Jason Castro took a 3-2 slider from Mariners pitcher Steve Cischek for a called third strike and ensuing batter George Springer took a 3-2 sinker from Cischek for a called third strike; Gomez did not bat in the 9th inning. Replays indicate the pitches to both batters were located over the inner half of home plate and belt high (Castro: px -.59, pz 2.66; Springer: px -.45, pz 2.88), the call was correct. At the time of Hinch's ejection, the Mariners were leading, 2-1. At the time of Gomez's ejection, the game was tied, 2-2. The Mariners ultimately won the contest, 3-2, in 10 innings.
