MLB Ejection 034 - Adrian Johnson (1; Chase Headley)

HP Umpire Adrian Johnson ejected Yankees 3B Chase Headley (foul ball call/HBP no-call) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Astros-Yankees game. With two out and none on, Headley attempted to bunt a 0-1 cutter from Astros pitcher Will Harris for a foul ball. The pitched ball made contact with the area in which Headley held the bat as Headley attempted to pull the bunt back; New York declined to challenge the play. Replays do not suggest the pitched ball solely and initially contacted Headley's hand, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 4-0. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 5-1.

This is Adrian Johnson (80)'s first ejection of the 2017 MLB regular season.
Adrian Johnson now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
