MLB Ejection 014 - Phil Cuzzi (1; Kevan Smith)

HP Umpire Phil Cuzzi ejected Angels catcher Kevan Smith (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Brewers-Angels game. With two out and none on, Smith took a 3-2 fastball from Brewers pitcher Junior Guerra for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px 0.25, pz 1.45 [sz_bot 1.63 / RAD 1.507 / MOE 1.424]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Angels were leading, 4-2. The Angels ultimately won the contest, 4-2.
