MLB Ejection P2 - Quinn Wolcott (1; Brandon Woodruff)

HP Umpire Quinn Wolcott ejected Brewers pitcher Brandon Woodruff (balls/strikes; QOCY) in the bottom of the 5th inning of the #Brewers-#Dodgers game. With one out and two on, Dodgers batter Austin Barnes took a 1-2 fastball from Woodruff for a called ball before hitting an RBI single on a subsequent pitch, after which batter Mookie Betts took consecutive sinkers from Woodruff for called first and second balls, before hitting a two-RBI double; Woodruff was ejected during a pitching change. Replays indicate that of the 12 callable pitches thrown in the bottom of the 5th inning prior to Woodruff's ejection, including the called balls to Barnes and Betts, Wolcott officiated all 12 correctly (12/12 = 100% accuracy), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Dodgers were leading, 3-0. The Dodgers ultimately won the contest, 3-0, eliminating the Brewers from the 2020 postseason.

This is Quinn Wolcott (81)'s second ejection of 2020.
Quinn Wolcott now has 11 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Prev + 3 MLB-Post + 2 Correct Call = 11).
Crew Chief Jim Reynolds now has 11 points in Crew Division (10 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 11).
*A mound visit/pitching change exemption was applied and QOC determined accordingly.
