MLB Ejection 38 - John Bacon (1; Craig Counsell)

HP Umpire John Bacon ejected Brewers Manager Craig Counsell (ball four call; QOCY) in the top of the 5th inning of the #Reds-#Brewers game. With two out and one on (R2), Reds batter Mike Moustakas took a 3-2 fastball from Brewers pitcher Freddy Peralta for a called fourth ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and above the midpoint (px 0.60, pz 3.53 [sz_top 3.43 / RAD 3.55 / MOE 3.47]) and that all other callable pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Reds were leading, 4-0. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 6-0, in 7 innings.

This is John Bacon (70)'s first ejection of 2020.
John Bacon now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Prev + 2 AAA + 2 Correct Call = 4).
Crew Chief Tim Timmons now has 4 points in Crew Division (3 Previous + 1 Correct = 4).
