MLB Ejection 128 - Lance Barrett (3; Mike Napoli)

HP Umpire Lance Barrett ejected Indians DH Mike Napoli for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 8th inning of the Indians-Yankees game. With none out and none on, Napoli took a 2-2 splitter from Yankees pitcher Tyler Clippard for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and above the midpoint (px 0.027, pz 3.510 [sz_top 3.230 / MOE 3.313]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Yankees were leading, 3-1. The Yankees ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

This is Lance Barrett (94)'s third ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Lance Barrett now has -9 points in the UEFL Standings (-7 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = -9).
Crew Chief Dale Scott now has -6 points in Crew Division (-6 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = -6).

This is the 128th ejection report of the 2016 regular season.
This is the 62nd player ejection of 2016. Prior to ejection, Napoli was 1-4 (3 SO) in the contest.
This is Cleveland's 5th ejection of 2016, T-2nd in the AL Central (CWS 6; CLE, DET, KC, MIN 5).
This is Mike Napoli's first ejection since July 27, 2015 (Toby Basner; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
This is Lance Barrett's first ejection since April 25, 2016 (Ryan Raburn; QOC = N [Balls/Strikes]).
