MLB Ejection 164 - Dale Scott (8; Martin Prado)

HP Umpire Dale Scott ejected Marlins 3B Martin Prado for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 3rd inning of the Marlins-Phillies game. With two out and one on, Prado took a 0-2 curveball from Phillies pitcher Alec Asher for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and knee high (px .999, pz 1.699 [sz_bot 1.470]) but that Prado attempted to strike the pitch (Play was reviewed by UEFL Appeals Board, which determined strike three was the proper outcome as a result of Prado's swing), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Phillies were leading, 3-0. The Marlins ultimately won the contest, 5-4.

This is Dale Scott (5)'s eighth ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Dale Scott now has 12 points in UEFL Standings (8 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 12).
Crew Chief Dale Scott now has -4 points in Crew Division (-5 Previous + 1 Correct Call = -4).
*See UEFL Rule 6-2-b-6-a, which explains why QOC is Correct by virtue of the charged third strike.

This is the 164th ejection report of the 2016 regular season.
This is the 75th player ejection of 2016. Prior to ejection, Prado was 0-2 (SO) in the contest.
This is Miami's 9th ejection of 2016, 1st in the NL East (MIA 9; ATL 8; NYM 5; WAS 4; PHI).
This is Martin Prado's first ejection since July 18, 2014 (Cory Blaser; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
This is Dale Scott's first ejection since September 9, 2016 (Welington Castillo; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
