MLB Ejection 166 - Mark Wegner (4; Brian Snitker)

1B Umpire Mark Wegner ejected Braves Manager Brian Snitker (warnings) in the bottom of the 1st inning of the #Marlins-#Braves game. With none out and none on, Braves batter Ronald Acuna took a first-pitch fastball from Marlins pitcher Elieser Hernandez for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate the HBP was located inside and struck Acuna in the lower back, resulting in warnings issued by HP Umpire Alan Porter (see asterisk for related history), the call was irrecusable.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Braves ultimately won the contest, 5-1.

This is Mark Wegner (14)'s fourth ejection of 2019.
Mark Wegner now has 8 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Prev + 2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable Call = 8).
Crew Chief Mark Wegner now has 2 points in Crew Division (1 Previous + 1 QOCU = 2).
