MLB Ejection 006 - Doug Eddings (1; Trea Turner)

HP Umpire Doug Eddings ejected Nationals SS Trea Turner (strike three call; QOCN) in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Mets-Nationals game. With two out and the bases loaded, Turner took a 0-2 fastball from Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom for a called third strike; it was the only callable pitch of the at bat (the first two strikes were both of the swinging variety). Replays indicate the 0-2 pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and belt-high (px 1.109, pz 2.934 [sz_top 3.467]), the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the Mets were leading, 4-2. The Mets ultimately won the contest, 8-2.

Doug Eddings now has -2 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = -2).
