MLB Ejections 035-36 - Manny Gonzalez (2-3; ARI x2)

HP Umpire Manny Gonzalez ejected Diamondbacks 3B Eduardo Escobar and manager Torey Lovullo (strike two call; QOCY) in the top of the 7th inning of the #Dbacks-#Mets game. With none out and none on, Escobar took a 1-1 cutter from Mets pitcher Jacob Barnes for a called second strike before striking out swinging on the next pitch. Replays indicate the 1-1 pitch was located over the heart of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -0.04, pz 1.31 [sz_bot 1.50 / RAD 1.38 / MOE 1.29]), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejections the Mets were leading, 3-1. The Mets ultimately won the contest, 4-2.

These are Manny Gonzalez (79)'s 2nd and 3rd ejections of 2021.
Manny Gonzalez now has 12 points in the UEFL Standings (4 Prev + 2*[2 MLB + 2 QOCY] = 12).
Crew Chief Jeff Nelson now has 4 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 2 Correct Call = 4).
