MLB Ejection 129 - Mark Ripperger (2; Kevin Pillar)

HP Umpire Mark Ripperger ejected Giants CF Kevin Pillar (strike two call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 8th inning of the Mets-Giants game. With two out and one on (R1), Pillar took a 1-1 curveball from Mets pitcher Seth Lugo for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and below the midpoint (px -0.2, pz 3.31 [sz_top 3.32]) [strike one is prohibited from consideration pursuant to league rule, decided 2013], the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 2-2. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 3-2, in 12 innings.

This is Mark Ripperger (90)'s second ejection of 2019.
Mark Ripperger now has 7 points in the UEFL Standings (3 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 7).
Crew Chief Brian O'Nora now has 5 points in Crew Division (4 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 5).
