MLB Ejections 072-73 - Alan Porter (2-3; OAK)

HP Umpire Alan Porter ejected Athletics RF Stephen Piscotty and Manager Bob Melvin (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 10th inning of the Astros-A's game. With two out and one on (R1), A's batter Piscotty took a 3-2 cutter from Astros pitcher Roberto Osuna for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and knee-high (px -0.32, pz 1.74 [sz_bot 1.62]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 4-4. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 6-4, in 12 innings.

These are Alan Porter (64)'s second and third ejections of 2019.
Alan Porter now has 13 points in the UEFL Standings (5 Prev + 2*[2 MLB + 2 Correct Call] = 13).
Crew Chief Jim Reynolds now has 4 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 2*[1 Correct Call] = 4).
*This pitch was located 3.912 vertical inches from being deemed an incorrect call.

This is the 32nd player ejection of 2019. Prior to ejection, Piscotty was 0-5 (3 SO) in the contest.
