MLB Ejection 01 - Jordan Baker (1; Derek Holland)

HP Umpire Jordan Baker ejected Pirates pitcher/bench player Derek Holland (ball three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the #Pirates-#Cardinals game. With one out and none on, Cardinals batter Lane Thomas took a 2-1 fastball from Pirates pitcher Mitch Keller for a called third ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px 0.51, pz 1.07 [sz_bot 1.53]) and that all other callable pitches during the half inning preceding ejection were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Pirates ultimately won the contest, 5-1.

This is Jordan Baker (71)'s first ejection of the 2020 MLB regular season.
Jordan Baker now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
