MLB Ejection 090 - Nic Lentz (2; David Ross)

HP Umpire Nic Lentz ejected Cubs manager David Ross (ball four call; QOCY) in the top of the 6th inning of the #Phillies-#Cubs game. With none out and none on, Phillies batter Bryce Harper took a 3-2 fastball from Cubs pitcher Rex Brothers for a called fourth ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px -0.36, pz 1.43 [sz_bot 1.60 / RAD 1.48 / MOE 1.56]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 2-2. The Phillies ultimately won the contest, 13-3.

This is Nic Lentz (59)'s 2nd ejection of 2021.
Nic Lentz now has 3 points in the UEFL Standings (-1 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 3).
