MLB Ejection 070 - Jeff Nelson (5; David Bell)

3B Umpire Jeff Nelson ejected Reds Manager David Bell (warnings & ejection no-call following HBP; QOCU) in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Pirates-Reds game. With none out and none on, Reds batter Eugenio Suarez took a first-pitch fastball from Pirates pitcher Clay Holmes for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate the pitch struck Suarez on the left wrist; warnings had not previously been issued and Suarez was the first hit batsman of the game, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Pirates were leading, 7-0. The Pirates ultimately won the contest, 7-2.

This is Jeff Nelson (45)'s fifth ejection of 2019.
Jeff Nelson now has 15 points in the UEFL Standings (13 Prev + 2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable Call = 15).
Crew Chief Jeff Nelson now has 7 points in Crew Division (6 Previous + 1 Irrecusable Call = 7).
