MLB Ejection 182 - Nic Lentz (3; Lewis Brinson)

HP Umpire Nic Lentz ejected Marlins CF Lewis Brinson (strike three call; QOCY) in the top of the 8th inning of the #Marlins-#Nationals game. With two out and none on, Brinson took a 3-2 curveball from Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and at the midpoint (px -0.58, pz 3.67 [sz_top 3.60 / RAD 3.72]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Nationals were leading, 6-0. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 7-0.

This is Nic Lentz (59)'s third ejection of 2019.
Nic Lentz now has 10 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Prev + 2 AAA + 2 Correct Call = 10).
Crew Chief Mike Everitt now has 2 points in Crew Division (1 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 2).
*This pitch was located 1.60 vertical inches from being deemed an incorrect call. If overnight processing changes Brinson's sz_top value from 3.60 to 3.73, the call will be considered incorrect. Postgame processing, however, rarely changes a zone variable by such a significant amount.

This is the 182nd ejection report of the 2019 MLB regular season.
This is the 91st player ejection of 2019. Prior to ejection, Brinson was 0-3 (SO) in the contest.
This is Miami's 5th ejection of 2019, T-4th in the NL East (PHI, WAS 7; ATL 6; MIA, NYM 5).
This is Lewis Brinson's first career MLB ejection.
This is Nic Lentz's 3rd ejection of 2019, 1st since June 27 (Carlos Gonzalez; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
