MLB Ejection 085 - Joe West (2; Ryan Rua)

HP Umpire Joe West ejected Rangers LF Ryan Rua (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the White Sox-Rangers game. With none out and none on, Rua took three consecutive pitches from White Sox pitcher Juan Minaya for called first, second, and third strikes. Replays indicate the first two called strikes were thrown well within the bounds of the strike zone and the terminal pitch of the at-bat was located over the outer edge of home plate and thigh-high (px .745, pz 2.581), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Rangers were leading, 5-4. The Rangers ultimately won the contest, 13-4.

This is Joe West (22)'s second ejection of 2018.
Joe West now has 8 points in the UEFL Standings (4 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 8).
Crew Chief Joe West now has -1 points in Crew Division (-2 Previous + 1 Correct Call = -1).
*UEFL Rule 6-2-b-1 (Kulpa Rule): |0| < STRIKE < |.748| < BORDERLINE < |.914| < BALL.

This is the 85th ejection report of the 2018 MLB regular season.
This is the 43rd player ejection of 2018. Prior to ejection, Rua was 1-3 (SO) in the contest.
This is Texas' 4th ejection of 2018, 1st in the AL West (TEX 4; LAA, HOU, SEA 3; OAK 0).
This is Ryan Rua's first career MLB ejection.
This is Joe West's 2nd ejection of 2018, 1st since June 15 (Andy Green; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
