MLB Ejection 075 - Jerry Meals (1; Jake Odorizzi)

HP Umpire Jerry Meals ejected Rays P Jake Odorizzi for arguing a ball four call in the top of the 6th inning of the Mariners-Rays game.

Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and knee high (px .542, pz 1.805 [sz_bot 1.530 / MOE 1.613]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Mariners were leading, 5-4. The Rays ultimately won the contest, 8-7.
