MLB Ejection 057 - Brian O'Nora (1; Craig Counsell)

HP Umpire Brian O'Nora ejected Brewers Manager Craig Counsell (fair/contact with batter foul ball no call) in the top of the 5th inning of the Brewers-Braves game. With one out and none on, Brewers batter Orlando Arcia hit a 0-1 fastball from Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz on the ground toward third base, fielded by third baseman Austin Riley to first baseman Freddie Freeman for a groundout; Milwaukee alleged that the batted ball struck Arcia in the batter's box, which would have rendered the play a foul ball; the fair ball call was upheld following crew consultation. Replays indicate that after making contact with the ground, the batted ball made contact with the instep of Arcia's left foot, the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the Brewers were leading, 2-1. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 3-2, in 10 innings.

This is Brian O'Nora (7)'s first ejection of 2019.
Brian O'Nora now has 1 point in the UEFL Standings (3 Prev + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = 1).
