MLB Ejection 118 - Doug Eddings (2; Doug Brocail)

HP Umpire Doug Eddings ejected Rangers Pitching Coach Doug Brocail (balk call; QOCY) in the top of the 9th inning of the Mariners-Rangers game. With one out and two on (R1, R2), Rangers pitcher Alex Claudio was called for a balk by HP Umpire Eddings during his 1-0 delivery to Mariners batter Robinson Cano. Replays indicate Claudio, pitching out of Set Position, failed to come to a stop prior to his delivery (there appeared to be continual movement of the hands and arms), the call was correct.* Play was reviewed and affirmed by the UEFL Appeals Board (9-0), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 4-4. The Mariners ultimately won the contest, 6-4.

This is Doug Eddings (88)'s second ejection of the 2017 MLB regular season.
Doug Eddings now has 11 points in the UEFL Standings (7 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 11).
Crew Chief Jeff Nelson now has 2 points in Crew Division (1 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 2).
*Rule 6.02(a)(13) states, "It is a balk when—The pitcher delivers the pitch from Set Position without coming to a stop."

This is the 118th ejection report of 2017.
This is Texas' 6th ejection of 2017, 1st in the AL West (TEX 6; OAK, SEA 4; HOU 2; LAA 1).
This is Doug Brocail's first ejection since June 17, 2012 (Dale Scott; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
This is Doug Eddings' 2nd ejection of 2017, 1st since July 5 (Yunel Escobar; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
