MLB Ejection 141 - Bill Miller (1; Nick Senzel)

HP Umpire Bill Miller ejected Reds CF Nick Senzel (strike two call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 4th inning of the Rockies-Reds game. With two out and one on (R3), Senzel took a 0-1 fastball from Rockies pitcher Peter Lambert for a called second strike before striking out swinging seven pitches later. Replays indicate the 0-1 pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and above the hollow of the knee (px 0.80, pz 1.61 [sz_bot 1.53]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Reds were leading, 2-0. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

This is Bill Miller (26)'s first ejection of 2016.
Bill Miller now has 7 points in the UEFL Standings (3 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 7).
