MLB Ejection 035 - Phil Cuzzi (1; Neil Walker)

HP Umpire Phil Cuzzi ejected Mets 2B Neil Walker (strike two call) in the top of the 9th inning of the Mets-Brewers game. With none out and none on, Walker took a 0-1 knuckle curve from Brewers pitcher Corey Knebel for a called second strike before flying out on an ensuing fastball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and below the midpoint (px -.837, pz 3.288 [sz_top 3.49]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Brewers were leading, 11-9. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 11-9.

This is Phil Cuzzi (10)'s first ejection of the 2017 MLB regular season.
Phil Cuzzi now has 5 points in the UEFL Standings (1 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 5).
