MLB Ejection 039 - Jeff Nelson (2; Ian Desmond)

HP Umpire Jeff Nelson ejected Rockies CF Ian Desmond (strike three call; QOCY) in the top of the 5th inning of the Rockies-Brewers game. With none out and none on, Desmond took a 2-2 fastball from Brewers pitcher Zach Davies for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and thigh-high (px 0.88, pz 2.20) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Brewers were leading, 5-0. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 5-1.

This is Jeff Nelson (45)'s second ejection of 2019.
Jeff Nelson now has 8 points in the UEFL Standings (4 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 8).
