MLB Ejection 144 - Marty Foster (3; Dale Sveum)

HP Umpire Marty Foster ejected Royals Bench Coach Dale Sveum (balls/strikes; QOCY) in the bottom of the 4th inning of the Royals-Indians game. With none out and none on, Indians batter Melky Cabrera doubled off Royals pitcher Brad Keller, Jason Kipnis lined out, Yan Gomes struck out swinging, and Greg Allen grounded out. Replays indicate of the six callable pitches thrown during the inning, five were officiated correctly (the 0-0 pitch to Kipnis ruled a ball was located in the strike zone; Kipnis lined out on the next pitch), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 1-1. The Indians ultimately won the contest, 3-1.

This is Marty Foster (60)'s third ejection of 2018.
Marty Foster now has -1 points in the UEFL Standings (-5 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = -1).
Crew Chief Joe West now has 0 points in Crew Division (-1 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 0).
*See UEFL Rule 6-5-d concerning the Balls/Strikes Exemption.
