MLB Ejections 03-4 - Stu Scheurwater (1-2; TOR x2)

Stu Scheurwater ejected Blue Jays DH Rowdy Tellez and Coach Dante Bichette (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 10th inning of the #Nationals-#BlueJays game. With none out and none on, Tellez took a 3-2 fastball from Nationals pitcher Tanner Rainey for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and above the hollow of the knee (px 0.46, pz 1.69 [sz_bot 1.63]) and that all other callable pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Nationals were leading, 4-0. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 4-0, in 10 innings.

These are Stu Scheurwater (85)'s first and second ejections of 2020.
Stu Scheurwater now has 9 points in the UEFL Standings (1 Prev + 2*[2 MLB + 2 Correct] = 9).
