MLB Ejection 113 - Paul Emmel (2; Blake Doyle)

HP Umpire Paul Emmel ejected Rockies Hitting Coach Blake Doyle for arguing a ball one call in the top of the 2nd inning of the Rays-Rockies game. With none out and none on, Rays batter Corey Dickerson took a 0-0 fastball (first pitch of the inning) from Rockies pitcher Jorge De La Rosa for a called first ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the inner edge of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px -1.438, pz .741 [sz_bot 1.570]) while all eligible first inning called strikes against Colorado were properly officiated (3/3 such pitches), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Rays were leading, 1-0. The Rays ultimately won the contest, 11-3.

This is Paul Emmel (50)'s second ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Paul Emmel now has 7 points in the UEFL Standings (3 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 7).
Crew Chief Dan Iassogna now has 2 points in Crew Division (1 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 2).
*See UEFL Rule 6-5-a-5 regarding contributory pitch Quality of Correctness for post-AB ejections.

This is the 113th ejection report of the 2016 regular season.
This is Colorado's 3rd ejection of 2016, T-3rd in the NL West (ARI, LAD 4; COL, SD, SF 3).
This is Blake Doyle's first career MLB ejection.
This is Paul Emmel's first ejection since April 9, 2016 (Brad Ausmus; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
