MLB Ejections 142-143 - Gabe Morales (1-2; CHC x2)

HP Umpire Gabe Morales ejected Cubs Manager Joe Maddon (ball two call; QOCY) and pitcher Carl Edwards, Jr. (balls/strikes; QOCY) in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Cubs-Brewers game. With two out and the bases loaded, Brewers batter Mike Moustakas took a 1-0 fastball from Edwards for a called second ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the inner edge of home plate and waist-high (px 1.311, pz 2.794) and that all pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct. Immediately following Moustakas' ensuing walk on four pitches, Edwards was ejected for arguing balls/strikes. Replays indicate of the 17 callable pitches during the half-inning preceding Edwards' ejection, 16 were properly officiated (16/17, 94.1% accuracy) and the one incorrect ball call was the 0-1 pitch to Jesus Aguilar several batsmen earlier (Aguilar would go on to strike out), the call was correct.* At the time of Maddon's ejection, the Cubs were leading, 3-2. At the time of Edwards' ejection, the game was tied, 3-3. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 4-3.

These are Gabe Morales (48)'s first and second ejections of 2018.
