MLB Ejection 040 - Mark Ripperger (1; Derek Shelton)

HP Umpire Mark Ripperger ejected Pirates Manager Derek Shelton (ball one call; QOCY) in the top of the 8th inning of the #Giants-#Pirates game. With two out and two on (R1, R2), Giants batter Darin Ruf took a first-pitch curveball from Pirates pitcher Chris Stratton for a called first ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and (px 0.53, pz 1.50 [sz_bot 1.59 / RAD 1.47 / MOE 1.55]), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 6-6. The Pirates ultimately won the contest, 8-6.

This is Mark Ripperger (90)'s 1st ejection of 2021.
Mark Ripperger now has 6 points in the UEFL Standings (2 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 QOCY = 6).
Crew Chief Tom Hallion now has 3 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 3).
*Pursuant to UEFL Rule 6-5-c, "Quality of Correctness only applies to the call made directly prior to ejection, or, if balls/called strikes during a single at-bat, any pitch called during that at bat." Accordingly, QOC is assigned based on the Ruf pitch. Had Shelton been ejected during the preceding Austin Slater at-bat or mound visit, QOC would have been based on the prior at-bat, in which the 1-1 pitch ruled ball two was located over the plate and above the knee (px 0.39, pz 1.64 [sz_bot 1.56 / RAD 1.44 / MOE 1.52]).

This is the 40th ejection report of the 2021 MLB regular season.
This is the 22nd manager ejection of 2021.
This is Pittsburgh's 2nd ejection of 2021, T-2nd in the NL Central (CIN 3; CHC, MIL, PIT 2; STL 1).
This is Derek Shelton's 1st ejection since Sept 1, 2020 (John Tumpane; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
This is Mark Ripperger's 1st ejection since August 19, 2020 (Max Muncy; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
