MLB Ejection 175 - Pat Hoberg (1; Justin Verlander)

HP Umpire Pat Hoberg ejected Astros pitcher Justin Verlander (ball three call; QOCY) in the top of the 6th inning of the #Rays-#Astros game. With one out and none on, Rays batter Tommy Pham took a 2-2 fastball from Verlander for a called third ball before hitting a double on the ensuing pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and thigh-high (px 1.07, pz 1.66 [sz_bot 1.61]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 9-0. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 15-1.

This is Pat Hoberg (31)'s second ejection of 2019.
