MLB Ejections 176-177 - Will Little (8-9; STL x2)

HP Umpire Will Little ejected Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter and Manager Mike Shildt (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Brewers-Cardinals game. With none out and one on (R1), Carpenter took a 2-2 knuckle curve from Brewers pitcher Corey Knebel for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and at the midpoint (px -.900, pz 3.631 [sz_top 3.49 / RAD 3.613 / MOE 3.696]), and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejections, the Brewers were leading, 7-4. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 12-4.

These are Will Little (93)'s eighth and ninth ejections of 2018.
Will Little now has 15 points in the UEFL Standings (7 Prev + 2*[2 MLB + 2 Correct Call] = 15).
Crew Chief Ted Barrett now has 8 points in Crew Division (6 Previous + 2*[1 Correct Call] = 8).
