MLB Ejection 003 - Ben May (1; Charlie Blackmon)

HP Umpire Ben May ejected Rockies RF Charlie Blackmon (strike three call; QOCY) in the top of the 7th inning of the #Rockies-#Giants game. With one out and none on, Blackmon took a 0-2 fastball from Giants pitcher Johnny Cueto for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and above the hollow of the knee (px -0.86, pz 1.68 [sz_bot 1.60]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 3-0.
