MLB Ejection 098 - Chad Fairchild (1; Justin Turner)

HP Umpire Chad Fairchild ejected Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (strike one call; QOCN) in the bottom of the 4th inning of the Rockies-Dodgers game. With none out and none on, Turner took two called strikes from Rockies pitcher German Marquez before subsequently grounding out and with one out and none on, Dodgers batter Max Muncy took a first-pitch fastball from Marquez for a called first strike. Replays indicate the pitch to Muncy was located off the inner edge of home plate and thigh-high (px 1.02, pz 2.49), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Dodgers were leading, 2-1. The Dodgers ultimately won the contest, 4-2.

This is Chad Fairchild (4)'s first ejection of 2019.
Chad Fairchild now has -1 points in the UEFL Standings (1 Prev + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect Call = -1).
Crew Chief Paul Emmel now has 9 points in Crew Division (9 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 9).
