With one out and none on, Reddick took a 3-2 fastball from Rays pitcher Emilio Pagan for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and below at the hollow of the knee (px 0.24, pz 1.40 [sz_bot 1.67 / RAD 1.54 / MOE 1.46] [sz_bot 1.59 / RAD 1.47 / MOE 1.38]), the call was incorrect correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Rays were leading, 9-8. The Rays ultimately won the contest, 9-8.

Jordan Baker now has 10 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 10).
Crew Chief Greg Gibson now has 3 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 3).
*This call is was previously incorrect by 0.72 vertical inches. If overnight processing for Reddick's sz_bot for the strike three call changed the value to 1.61 or less, Baker's call would be deemed correct.
*Postgame processing lowered Reddick's sz_bot from 1.67 to 1.59, which is a 0.08-foot or 0.96-inch adjustment. Accordingly, the call, previously incorrect by 0.72 inches, is now correct by 0.24 vertical inches (0.72 - 0.96 = -0.24).
