MLB Ejection 010 - Phil Cuzzi (1; Bud Black)

HP Umpire Phil Cuzzi ejected Rockies Manager Bud Black (strike two call; QOCY) in the top of the 3rd inning of the #Rockies-#Dodgers game. With one out and one on (R1), Rockies batter Garrett Hampson took a 0-1 sinker from Dodgers pitcher Dustin May for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -0.51, pz 1.36 [sz_bot 1.51 / RAD 1.39 / MOE 1.30]) and all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Dodgers were leading, 2-0.
