MLB Ejection 003 - Eric Cooper (1; Ketel Marte)

HP Umpire Eric Cooper ejected Diamondbacks SS Ketel Marte (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Rockies-Diamondbacks game. With none out and none on, Marte took a 0-2 slider from Rockies pitcher Adam Ottavino for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and knee-high (px -.302, pz 1.762 [sz_bot 1.565]) and that all other callable pitches during the at-bat, including the called second strike (px -.779, pz 3.296 [sz_top 3.411]) were properly officiated, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Diamondbacks were leading, 9-7. The Diamondbacks ultimately won the contest, 9-8.
