MLB Ejection 058 - Dan Bellino (1; Derek Shelton)

HP Umpire Dan Bellino ejected Pirates manager Derek Shelton (strike three call; QOCY) in the top of the 6th inning of the #Pirates-#Royals game. With none out and two on (R1, R2), Pirates batter Michael Perez took a 3-2 sinker from Royals pitcher Brady Singer for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner edge of home plate and above the knee (px 0.69, pz 1.72 [sz_bot 1.50 / RAD 1.38]) and that all pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection Royals were leading, 8-5. The Royals ultimately won the contest, 10-5.

This is Dan Bellino (2)'s 1st ejection of 2021.
Dan Bellino now has 7 points in the UEFL Standings (3 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 7).
Crew Chief Joe West now has 10 points in Crew Division (9 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 10).
