MLB Ejection 034 - Alan Porter (2; Matt Kemp)

HP Umpire Alan Porter ejected Dodgers LF Matt Kemp (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Reds-Dodgers game. With two out and one on (R2), Kemp took a 1-2 fastball from Reds pitcher Austin Brice for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and thigh-high (px 0.813, pz 1.898 [sz_bot 1.62]), and that all other callable pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Reds were leading, 5-1. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 5-2.

This is Alan Porter (64)'s second ejection of 2018.
Alan Porter now has 9 points in the UEFL Standings (5 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 9).
Crew Chief Angel Hernandez now has 1 point in Crew Division (0 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 1).
