MLB Ejection 089 - Doug Eddings (1; Yunel Escobar)

HP Umpire Doug Eddings ejected Angels 3B Yunel Escobar (strike two call) in the top of the 6th inning of the Angels-Twins game.

Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner edge of home plate and above the hollow of the knee (px -.816, pz 1.508 [sz_bot 1.399]), the call was correct.
