MLB Ejection 103 - Phil Cuzzi (5; John Farrell)

HP Umpire Phil Cuzzi ejected Red Sox Manager John Farrell (strike three call; QOCY) in the top of the 5th inning of the Red Sox-Angels game. With two out and none on, Red Sox batter Dustin Pedroia took a 1-2 fastball from Angels pitcher JC Ramirez for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px .165, pz 1.425 [sz_bot 1.487 / MOE 1.404]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Angels were leading, 4-3. The Angels ultimately won the contest, 7-3.
