MLB Ejection 016 - Cory Blaser (1; David Ross)

HP Umpire Cory Blaser ejected Cubs Manager David Ross (strike one call; QOCN) in the bottom of the 9th inning of the #Brewers-#Cubs game.

Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and above the midpoint between the pants-top and shoulders (px 0.01, pz 3.89 [sz_top 3.29 / RAD 3.41 / MOE 3.50]), the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the Brewers were leading, 4-3. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 4-3.
