MLB Ejections 27-29 - Mark Ripperger (3-5; LAD)

HP Umpire Mark Ripperger ejected Dodgers Hitting Coach Robert Van Scoyoc, Manager Dave Roberts and 1B Max Muncy (strike two call; QOCY) in the top of the 6th inning of the Dodgers-Mariners game. With one out and none on, Muncy took a 2-1 splitter from Mariners pitcher Taijuan Walker for a called second strike beforing striking out swinging on the 2-2 pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px 0.43, pz 1.47 [sz_bot 1.54 / RAD 1.42]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct*. At the time of the ejections, the Mariners were leading, 5-3. The Mariners ultimately won the contest, 6-4.

These are Mark Ripperger (90)'s third, fourth, and fifth ejections of 2020.
Mark Ripperger now has 23 points in the UEFL Standings (11 Prev + 3*[2 MLB + 2 QOCY] = 23).
Crew Chief Adrian Johnson now has 4 points in Crew Division (1 Previous + 3 Correct Call = 4).
*This pitch was located 1.60 vertical inches from being deemed an incorrect call.
