MLB Ejection 50 - Quinn Wolcott (1; Eric Hosmer)

HP Umpire Quinn Wolcott ejected Padres 1B Eric Hosmer (strike three call; QOCY) in the top of the 8th inning of the #Padres-#Athletics game. With one out and none on, Hosmer took a 0-2 fastball from A's pitcher Joakim Soria for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -0.79, pz 1.67 [sz_bot 1.78 / RAD 1.66]) and all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the A's were leading, 8-2^. The A's ultimately won the contest, 8-4.

This is Quinn Wolcott (81)'s first ejection of 2020.
Quinn Wolcott now has 6 points in the UEFL Standings (2 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 6).
Crew Chief Adrian Johnson now has 4 points in Crew Division (3 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 4).
*UEFL Rule 6-2-b-1 (Kulpa Rule): |0| < STRIKE < |.748| < BORDERLINE < |.914| < BALL.
This pitch was located 1.49 horizontal and 1.15 vertical inches from being deemed incorrect.
^Official Baseball Rule 8.01(d) states, "If an umpire disqualifies a player while a play is in progress, the disqualification shall not take effect until no further action is possible in that play." Accordingly, the score at the time of Hosmer's ejection is 8-2, even though he was ejected before ensuing batter Austin Nola touched home plate on his home run.

This is the 50th ejection report of the 2020 MLB regular season.
This is the 22nd player ejection of 2020. Prior to ejection, Hosmer was 0-4 (SO).
This is San Diego's 2nd ejection of 2020, T-2nd in the NL West (LAD 3; ARI, SD 2; COL 1; SF 0).
