MLB Ejection 112 - Rob Drake (2; Mike Shildt)

HP Umpire Rob Drake ejected Cardinals Manager Mike Shildt (time out request not granted during pitcher's delivery; QOCY) in the top of the 4th inning of the Cardinals-Mariners game. With one out and none on, Cardinals batter Yairo Munoz requested "Time" as Mariners pitcher Tommy Milone threw a 0-1 changeup for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and thigh-high (px 0.14, pz 2.27) and that pitcher Milone appeared to be in the midst of his delivery at the moment Munoz requested time out (pursuant to Rule 5.04(b)(2), an umpire shall not grant a request for or otherwise call "Time" once the pitcher has started his windup or come to set position), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 3-3. The Cardinals ultimately won the contest, 5-4.

This is Rob Drake (30)'s second ejection of 2019.
Rob Drake now has 14 points in the UEFL Standings (10 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 14).
Crew Chief Tim Timmons now has 1 point in Crew Division (0 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 1).
*Rule 5.04(b)(2) Comment states, "Umpires will not call 'Time' at the request of the batter or any member of his team once the pitcher has started his windup or has come to a set position even though the batter claims 'dust in his eyes,' 'steamed glasses,' 'didn’t get the sign' or for any other cause."
