MLB Ejection 068 - James Hoye (1; Joakim Soria)

HP Umpire James Hoye ejected Athletics pitcher Joakim Soria (ball two call; QOCY) in the top of the 9th inning of the Angels-A's game. With two out and two on (R1, R2), Angels batter Shohei Ohtani took a 1-2 curveball from Soria for a called second ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer half of home plate and thigh-high (px -0.766, pz 2.100) and preceded a double such that the ball call realistically resulted in a different outcome of the at-bat pursuant to UEFL Rule 6-5-c, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Angels were leading, 6-4. The Angels ultimately won the contest, 6-4.

This is James Hoye (92)'s first ejection of 2019.
James Hoye now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Brian O'Nora now has 1 point in Crew Division (0 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 1).
*UEFL Rule 6-2-b-1 (Kulpa Rule): |0| < STRIKE < |.748| < BORDERLINE < |.914| < BALL.
This pitch was located 0.216 horizontal inches from being deemed an incorrect call.
