MLB Ejection 005 - Jeff Nelson (1; Matt Kemp)

HP Umpire Jeff Nelson ejected Reds LF Matt Kemp (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Brewers-Reds game. With two out and one on (R3), Kemp took a 2-2 slider from Brewers pitcher Zach Davies for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px 0.48, pz 1.53 [sz_bot 1.56 / RAD 1.437, 1.16 inches of overlap]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Brewers were leading, 3-2. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 4-3.

Jeff Nelson now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 2).
