MLB Ejection 167 - Phil Cuzzi (3; Chip Hale)

HP Umpire Phil Cuzzi ejected Nationals Bench Coach Chip Hale (balls/strikes; QOCY) in the top of the 4th inning of the Nationals-Braves game. With none out and none on, Nationals batter Tanner Roark walked, Victor Robles singled, Trea Turner grounded out, Bryce Harper walked, Anthony Rendon popped out, and Juan Soto flied out. Replays indicate that of the 21 callable pitches in the top of the 4th inning, Cuzzi properly officiated 21 of them (21/21, 100% accuracy), and the cited 3-0 pitch to Rendon was located over the inner edge of home plate and above the knees (px -.887, pz 1.751 [sz_bot 1.565]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Nationals were leading, 5-0. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 6-4.

This is Phil Cuzzi (10)'s third ejection of 2018.
Phil Cuzzi now has -8 points in the UEFL Standings (-12 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = -8).
Crew Chief Jeff Nelson 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.
