MLB Ejection 194 - Dan Bellino (2; James McCann)

HP Umpire Dan Bellino ejected White Sox PH James McCann (ball two call; QOCY) in the top of the 9th inning of the #Royals-#WhiteSox game. With two out and two on in the 8th (R1, R2), McCann took a 0-0 slider from Royals pitcher Tim Hill for a called first strike before striking out two pitches later. In the 9th, Royals leadoff batter Brett Phillips took a 1-2 changeup from White Sox pitcher Hector Santiago for a called second ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and above the knee (px -0.99, pz 1.83 [sz_bot 1.65]), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Royals were leading, 8-6. The Royals ultimately won the contest, 8-6.

This is Dan Bellino (2)'s second ejection of 2019.
Dan Bellino now has 11 points in the UEFL Standings (7 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 11).
Crew Chief Alfonso Marquez now has 9 points in Crew Division (8 Previous + 1 QOCY = 9).
*UEFL Rule 6-2-b-1 (Kulpa Rule): |0| < STRIKE < |.748| < BORDERLINE < |.914| < BALL.
This pitch was located 2.90 horizontal inches from being deemed an incorrect call.
^Pursuant to UEFL rules, the 0-0 pitch in the eighth inning (4.6 inches from .914) is prohibited from QOC consideration because the ejection occurred in the 9th inning following a contested pitch to an opposing player.

This is the 194th ejection report of the 2019 MLB regular season.
This is the 96th player ejection of 2019. Prior to ejection, McCann was 0-1 (SO) in the contest.
This is Chicago's 11th ejection of 2019, T-1st in the AL Central (CWS, DET 11; KC 8; MIN 4; CLE 1).
This is James McCann's 1st ejection since Sept 13, 2017 (Quinn Wolcott; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
This is Dan Bellino's 2nd ejection of 2019, 1st since April 11 (Brian Snitker; QOC = Y [Check Swing]).
