MLB Ejection 160 - Eric Cooper (2; Tim Laker)

HP Umpire Eric Cooper ejected Mariners Hitting Coach Tim Laker (strike two call; QOCY) in the top of the 7th inning of the #Mariners-#Tigers game. With one out and one on (R1), Mariners batter Tom Murphy took a 0-1 fastball from Tigers pitcher Matt Hall for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and at the midpoint (px 0.10, pz 3.45 [sz_top 3.34 / RAD 3.46]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Mariners were leading, 9-6. The Mariners ultimately won the contest, 11-6.

This is Eric Cooper (56)'s second ejection of 2019.
Eric Cooper now has 3 points in the UEFL Standings (-1 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 3).
Crew Chief Joe West now has -9 points in Crew Division (-10 Previous + 1 Correct Call = -9).
*This pitch was located 1.12 vertical inches from being deemed an incorrect call.
QOC value subject to correction pursuant to postgame processing.

This is the 160th ejection report of the 2019 MLB regular season.
This is Seattle's 4th ejection of 2019, T-2nd in the AL West (OAK 6; SEA, TEX 4; HOU, LAA 3).
This is Tim Laker's 1st ejection since August 20, 2003 (Scott Nelson; QOC = U [Out/Safe]).
This is Eric Cooper's 2nd ejection of 2019, 1st since May 25 (Terry Francona; QOC = N [Check Swing]).
