MLB Ejections 041-42 - Chris Segal (1-2; Crawford, Bochy)

HP Umpire Chris Segal ejected Giants SS Brandon Crawford and Manager Bruce Bochy (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 12th inning of the Rockies-Giants game. With none out and none on, Crawford took a 3-2 fastball from Rockies pitcher Wade Davis for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -.289, pz 1.423 [sz_bot 1.589 / MOE 1.506 / MOE-RAD 1.382]), the call was correct.* At the time the ejections, the Rockies were leading, 5-3. The Rockies ultimately won the contest, 5-3, in 12 innings.

These are Chris Segal (96)'s 1st and 2nd ejections of 2018.
Chris Segal now has 8 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2*[2 AAA + 2 Correct Call] = 8).
Crew Chief Brian O'Nora now has 2 points in Crew Division (0 Previous + 2 Correct Call = 2).
*This pitch was located 0.492 vertical inches from being deemed an incorrect call.
