MLB Ejection 053 - Quinn Wolcott (1; Craig Counsell)

HP Umpire Quinn Wolcott ejected Brewers Manager Craig Counsell (strike three call; QOCY) in the top of the 8th inning of the Brewers-Indians game. With one out and one on (R1), Brewers batter Travis Shaw took a 2-2 sinker from Indians pitcher Oliver Perez for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px .273, pz 1.584 [sz_bot 1.627 / RAD 1.505]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Indians were leading, 3-1. The Indians ultimately won the contest, 3-1.

This is Quinn Wolcott (81)'s first ejection of 2018.
Quinn Wolcott now has 1 point in the UEFL Standings (-3 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 1).
Crew Chief Jeff Kellogg now has -7 points in Crew Division (-8 Previous + 1 Correct Call = -7).
