MLB Ejection 048 - Tony Randazzo (1; AJ Hinch)

HP Umpire Tony Randazzo ejected Astros Manager AJ Hinch (strike three call; QOCN) in the top of the 6th inning of the Astros-Indians game. With none out and one on (R1), Astros batter Alex Bregman took a 2-2 fastball from Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and waist-high (px 1.089, pz 2.667), after which Randazzo called three consecutive balls to ensuing batter Jose Altuve, the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the Indians were leading, 3-1. The Indians ultimately won the contest, 10-9, in 14 innings.

This is Tony Randazzo (11)'s first ejection of 2018.
Tony Randazzo now has -3 points in the UEFL Standings (-1 Prev + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = -3).
