MLB Ejection 104 - Nic Lentz (1; Kevin Long)

HP Umpire Nic Lentz ejected Nationals Hitting Coach Kevin Long (strike three call; QOCY) in the top of the 2nd inning of the Nationals-Brewers game. With none out and none on, Nationals batter Trea Turner took a 1-2 slider from Brewers pitcher Jhoulys Chacin 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 -.472, pz 1.534 [sz_bot 1.589 / RAD 1.466]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Nationals were leading, 1-0.

This is Nic Lentz (59)'s first ejection of 2018.
Nic Lentz now has 9 points in the UEFL Standings (5 Prev + 2 AAA + 2 Correct Call = 9).
