MLB Ejection 05 - Angel Hernandez (1; Phil Nevin)

HP Umpire Angel Hernandez ejected Yankees 3B Coach Phil Nevin (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Phillies-Yankees game. With one out and two on (R1, R2), Yankees batter Mike Ford took a 3-2 sinker from Phillies pitcher Trevor Kelley for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner edge of home plate and thigh-high (px 0.82, pz 2.24) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Phillies were leading, 11-7. The Phillies ultimately won the contest, 11-7, in 7 innings.

This is Angel Hernandez (5)'s first ejection of 2020.
Angel Hernandez now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Angel Hernandez now has 3 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 3).
*UEFL Rule 6-2-b-1 (Kulpa Rule): |0| < STRIKE < |.748| < BORDERLINE < |.914| < BALL.
*This pitch was located 1.13 horizontal inches from being deemed an incorrect call.
