MLB Ejection 084 - Sean Barber (1; Bob Melvin)

HP Umpire Sean Barber ejected Athletics Manager Bob Melvin (ball two call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the A's-Rays game. With one out and two on (R1, R2), Rays batter Austin Meadows took a 1-0 slider from Athletics pitcher Brett Anderson for a called second ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px -1.03, pz 1.52 [sz_bot 1.58]) and that all other pitches during the inning were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The A's ultimately won the contest, 6-2.

This is Sean Barber (29)'s first ejection of 2019.
Sean Barber now has 0 points in the UEFL Standings (-4 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 0).
