MLB Ejection 153 - Jim Joyce (1; AJ Hinch)

HP Umpire Jim Joyce ejected Astros Manager AJ Hinch for arguing a ball (foul no-call) and wild-pitch call in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the Astros-Indians game. With two out and the bases loaded, Indians batter Lonnie Chisenhall attempted to check his swing on a 2-2 curveball from Indians pitcher David Paulino, resulting in a wild pitch and two runs scoring. Replays indicate the pitch appeared to make contact with Chisenhall's bat; the play is not reviewable, the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Indians were leading, 4-1. The Indians ultimately won the contest, 10-7.

This is Jim Joyce (66)'s first ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Jim Joyce now has -7 points in UEFL Standings (-5 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = -7).
Crew Chief Jim Joyce now has -7 points in Crew Division (-7 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = -7).
