MLB Ejection 076 - Jerry Meals (1; Nick Franklin)

2B Umpire Jerry Meals ejected Brewers LF Nick Franklin (Replay Review time limit; QOCU) in the top of the 1st inning of the Brewers-Braves game. With one out and one on, Braves pitcher RA Dickey attempted to pick off Brewers baserunner R1 Keon Broxton, ruled safe by 1B Umpire Ed Hickox. Bench player Franklin was ejected for arguing that the Braves took too long to decide whether to challenge the call. Because Atlanta did not actually attempt to file a Manager's Challenge, there can be no Quality of Correctness relative to the time limit for managers to initiate Replay Review, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Braves ultimately won the contest, 3-1.

This is Jerry Meals (41)'s first ejection of the 2017 MLB regular season.
Jerry Meals now has 2 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable Call = 2).
Crew Chief Jerry Meals now has -5 points in Crew Division (-6 Previous + 1 Irrecusable Call = -5).

This is the 76th ejection report of 2017.
This is the 31st player ejection of 2017. Prior to ejection, Franklin was benched; he did not play.
This is Milwaukee's 3rd ejection of 2017, T-1st in the NL Central (MIL, PIT, STL 3; CHC, CIN 1).
This is Nick Franklin's first ejection since March 19, 2017 (Ryan Blakney; QOC = U [Balls/Strikes]).
This is Jerry Meals' first ejection since July 5, 2016 (Joe Maddon; QOC = N [Balls/Strikes]).
