MLB Ejection 150 - Paul Emmel (5; Clint Hurdle)

HP Umpire Paul Emmel ejected Pirates Manager Clint Hurdle (ball four call; QOCY) in the top of the 7th inning of the Dodgers-Pirates game. With two out and two on (R1, R2), Dodgers batter Chris Taylor took a 3-2 fastball from Pirates pitcher Johnny Barbato for a called fourth ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and above the midpoint (px -.185, pz 3.478 [sz_top 3.411], or .8 inches above the strike zone), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Dodgers were leading, 3-1. The Dodgers ultimately won the contest, 5-2.

This is Paul Emmel (50)'s fifth ejection of the 2017 MLB regular season.
Paul Emmel now has 13 points in the UEFL Standings (9 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 13).
Crew Chief Paul Emmel now has 8 points in Crew Division (7 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 8).
