MLB Ejection P-3 - Mike Winters (3; Joe Maddon)

RF Umpire Mike Winters ejected Cubs Manager Joe Maddon (foul ball call by HP Umpire Jim Wolf; QOCN) in the top of the 8th inning of the Dodgers-Cubs game. With one out and one on (R1), Dodgers batter Curtis Granderson attempted to strike a 2-2 knuckle-curve from Cubs pitcher Wade Davis, originally ruled a swinging strike by HP Umpire Wolf and reversed to that of a foul ball after consultation with 3B Umpire Eric Cooper and crewmates. Replays indicate Granderson's bat did not make contact with the baseball during the pitch in question, the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Cubs were leading, 3-2. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

This is Mike Winters (33)'s third ejection of 2017, second of the 2017 postseason, 2nd of the NLCS.
Mike Winters now has 6 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Prev + 2 MLB - 2 Incorrect-Crewmate = 6).
