MLB Ejection 059 - Scott Barry (1; Larry Rothschild) & Ask the UEFL Dropped Fly Ball Double Play in Chicago

HP Umpire Scott Barry ejected Padres pitching coach Larry Rothschild (ball three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 5th inning of the #Padres-#Cubs game. With none out and none on, Cubs batter Nick Martini took a 2-0 curveball from Padres pitcher Pierce Johnson for a called third ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and above the midpoint (px -0.35, pz 3.62 [sz_top 3.32 / RAD 3.44]), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 1-1. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 6-1.

This game also featured an Ask the UEFL double play that ended the bottom of the 4th inning when Cubs batter PJ Higgins, with one out and the bases loaded, hit a fly ball to shallow left field, where Padres shortstop Ha-Seong Kim and left fielder Tommy Pham collided while attempting to catch the batted ball. As the ball fell to the ground, Cubs baserunners R2 Rafael Ortega and R1 Eric Sogard failed to advance to their next bases, resulting in an inning-ending double play when the Padres forced Ortega and Sogard out by tagging third and second base, respectively.

This is Scott Barry (87)'s 1st ejection of 2021.
Scott Barry now has 5 points in the UEFL Standings (1 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 5).
Crew Chief Dan Iassogna now has 4 points in Crew Division (3 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 4).
