MLB Ejection 040 - Paul Emmel (2; Aaron Boone)

HP Umpire Paul Emmel ejected Yankees Manager Aaron Boone (ball two/HBP no-call; QOCY) in the top of the 7th inning of the Yankees-Diamondbacks game. With none out and none on, Yankees batter Tyler Wade squared to bunt and pulled his bat back as Diamondbacks pitcher Yoan Lopez's 1-1 slider bounced in the dirt near Wade's left foot, ruled a ball. Having lost his Manager's Challenge on an upheld force play at second base in the top of the 5th inning, Yankees Manager Boone was unable to challenge the Wade pitch and unable to request a Crew Chief Review.* Replays indicate the pitch did not appear to contact Wade's foot, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Diamondbacks were leading, 3-1. The Diamondbacks ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

This is Paul Emmel (50)'s second ejection of 2019.
Paul Emmel now has 0 points in the UEFL Standings (-4 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 0).
Crew Chief Paul Emmel now has -1 points in Crew Division (-2 Previous + 1 Correct Call = -1).
*Commentary Critique: This play could not have been reviewed via video. In 2017, MLB changed its Replay Review Regulations for Crew Chief Reviews on non-home run calls for a team out of challenges. The 2014-16 rule stated these Crew Chief Reviews could begin in the 7th inning. In 2017, this was changed to the 8th inning. As such, Boone could not request a Crew Chief Review for this play, which occurred in the 7th inning (see: "Crew Chief Reviews Now Begin in the 8th Inning").
