MLB Ejection 055 - John Tumpane (2; Asdrubal Cabrera)

HP Umpire John Tumpane ejected Mets 2B Asdrubal Cabrera (strike three call; QOCY) in the middle of the 9th inning of the Yankees-Mets game. With two out and none on in the bottom of the 8th, Cabrera took a 0-2 slider from Yankees pitcher Dellin Betances for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and thigh-high (px -.627, pz 1.994 [sz_bot 1.535]), and that there were no other callable pitches during the at-bat, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Yankees were leading, 4-3. The Yankees ultimately won the contest, 4-3.

This is John Tumpane (74)'s second ejection of 2018.
John Tumpane now has 10 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 10).
Crew Chief Mark Wegner now has -2 points in Crew Division (-3 Previous + 1 Correct Call = -2).
