MLB Ejection 146 - Brian O'Nora (1; Joe Girardi)

HP Umpire Brian O'Nora ejected Yankees Manager Joe Girardi for arguing a strike two call in the top of the 8th inning of the Yankees-Royals game. With two out and the bases loaded, Yankees batter Didi Gregorius took a 0-1 fastball from Royals pitcher Chris Young for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over inner half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px .456, pz 1.675 [sz_bot 1.62]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Royals were leading, 8-1. The Royals ultimately won the contest, 8-5.

This is Brian O'Nora (7)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Brian O'Nora now has 3 points in UEFL Standings (-1 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 3).
Crew Chief Jeff Kellogg now has 7 points in Crew Division (6 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 7).

This is the 146th ejection report of the 2016 regular season.
This is 57th Manager ejection of 2016.
This is New York's 2nd ejection of 2016, T-4th in the AL East (TOR 14; BOS 6; BAL 3; NYY, TB 2).
