MLB Ejection 007 - Brian O'Nora (1; Travis Shaw)

HP Umpire Brian O'Nora ejected Brewers 3B Travis Shaw (strike three call; QOCN) in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Cubs-Brewers game. With two out and one on (R2), Shaw took a 1-2 fastball from Cubs pitcher Jonathan Lester for a called third strike (the second called strike of the at-bat, the first was over the heart of home plate and thigh-high). Replays indicate the 1-2 pitch was off the outer edge of home plate and above the hollow of the knee (px -.922, pz 1.647 [sz_bot 1.627]), the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the Cubs were leading, 5-0. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 8-0.
