MLB Ejection 027 - Alan Porter (1; Josh Bard)

HP Umpire Alan Porter ejected Yankees Bench Coach Josh Bard (strike three call; QOCY) in the top of the 4th inning of the Yankees-Angels game. With none out and none on, Yankees batter Aaron Judge took a 1-2 sinker from Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and thigh-high (px .742, pz 2.487) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated (Judge's at-bat was the first of the inning), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Angels were leading, 1-0. The Yankees ultimately won the contest, 4-3, in 10 innings.

This is Alan Porter (64)'s first ejection of 2018.
Alan Porter now has 6 points in the UEFL Standings (2 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 6).
Crew Chief Bill Miller now has 1 point in Crew Division (0 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 1).
*UEFL Rule 6-2-b-1 (Kulpa Rule): |0| < STRIKE < |.748| < BORDERLINE < |.914| < BALL.
*The pitch was located 2.064 horizontal inches from being deemed an incorrect call.

This is the 27th ejection of the 2018 MLB regular season.
This is New York-AL's 4th ejection of 2018, 1st in the AL East (NYY 4; BOS 1; BAL, TB, TOR 0).
This is Josh Bard's first ejection since May 31, 2007 (Ed Rapuano; QOC = U [HR/Not HR]).
This is Alan Porter's first ejection since April 21, 2017 (Brian Butterfield; QOC = Y-C [Replay Review]).
