MLB Ejection 106 - Nic Lentz (2; Carlos Gonzalez)

HP Umpire Nic Lentz ejected Cubs RF Carlos Gonzalez (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 4th inning of the Braves-Cubs game.

Replays indicate the 3-1 pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px 0.55, pz 1.58 [sz_bot 1.64 / RAD 1.52]) and the 3-2 pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and knee-high (px -0.45, pz 1.71), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Braves were leading, 6-3. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 9-7.
