MLB Ejection 177 - Doug Eddings (8; Dave Martinez)

3B Umpire Doug Eddings ejected Nationals manager Dave Martinez (runner's lane interference call by HP Umpire Adam Beck; QOCY) in the top of the 10th inning of the #Nationals-#Marlins game. With two out and the bases loaded, Nationals batter Josh Bell hit a 3-2 changeup from Marlins pitcher Dylan Floro on the ground to first baseman Lewin Diaz, who threw to catcher Nick Fortes to retire Marlins baserunner R3 Luis Garcia, and back to Diaz at first base, ruled runner's lane interference as the throw hit Bell in the back as Bell hit Diaz's glove off of his hand. Replays indicate Bell failed to run within the 3-foot running lane at any point during his journey to first base, and, in doing so, interfered with the fielder taking the throw at first base, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 7-7. The Marlins ultimately won the contest, 8-7, in 10 innings.

This is Doug Eddings (88)'s 8th ejection of 2021.
Doug Eddings now has 3 points in the UEFL Standings (1 Prev + 2 Correct-Crewmate = 3).

*Official Baseball Rule 5.09(a)(11) states that a batters are out when—"In running the last half of the distance from home base to first base, while the ball is being fielded to first base, they run outside (to the right of) the three-foot line, or inside (to the left of) the foul line, and in the umpire’s judgment in so doing interfere with the fielder taking the throw at first base, in which case the ball is dead...The batter-runner is permitted to exit the three-foot lane by means of a step, stride, reach or slide in the immediate vicinity of first base for the sole purpose of touching first base."
