MLB Ejection 096 - Jerry Layne (1; Clint Hurdle)

HP Umpire Jerry Layne ejected Pirates Manager Clint Hurdle ("Time" call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Cardinals-Pirates game.  With none out and two on (R1, R2), Pirates batter Adam Frazier hit 0-2 splitter from Cardinals pitcher Matt Bowman on the ground to third baseman Jedd Gyorko, who threw to second baseman Kolten Wong for a double play, after which batter-runner Frazier ran to second base with no Cardinal covering as 2B Umpire Chris Guccione sent him back to first, informing him that "Time" had been called. Replays indicate that after completion of the double play, Cardinals first baseman Matt Carpenter requested "Time," which Guccione granted, subsequently mirrored by 1B Umpire Marvin Hudson, 3B Umpire Chad Whitson, and Layne, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 2-2. The Pirates ultimately won the contest, 5-2.

This is Jerry Layne (24)'s first ejection of the 2017 MLB regular season.
Jerry Layne now has 6 points in the UEFL Standings (2 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 6).
