MLB Ejection 017 - Paul Emmel (1; Andy Green)

HP Umpire Paul Emmel ejected Padres Manager Andy Green (balls/strikes) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Marlins-Padres game. Green's objection to Emmel's strike zone concerned the final two Padres batters in San Diego's 7th inning (the first batter, Allen Cordoba, flew out before any strikes were thrown). Of the two callable pitches, the called first strike to Padres batter Luis Torrens was located over the inner half of home plate and thigh high (px .350, pz 2.433) and the called second strike to batter Austin Hedges was located over the outer half of home plate and below the midpoint (px .574, pz 3.48 [sz_top 3.549]), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Marlins were leading, 6-3. The Marlins ultimately won the contest, 7-3.

This is Paul Emmel (50)'s first ejection of the 2017 MLB regular season.
Paul Emmel now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Paul Emmel now has 3 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 3).
*UEFL Rule 6-5-d address Ball/Strike ejections occurring at the end of an inning, and states that holistic review of the umpire's "overall inning's performance" may be used to govern this specific type of ball/strike ejection.

This is the 17th ejection report of 2017.
This is the 10th Manager ejection of 2017.
