MLB Ejections 171-172 - Bill Welke (3-4; CWS x2)

2B Umpire Bill Welke ejected White Sox pitcher Mike Wright and manager Tony La Russa (throwing at Angels batter Shohei Ohtani) in the top of the 9th inning of the #Angels-#WhiteSox game. With two out and none on, Angels batter Ohtani took a 2-1 fastball from Wright for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and struck Ohtani on the lower leg; warnings had not previously been issued and Ohtani was the second hit batsman of the game, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejections, the Angels were leading, 9-3. The Angels ultimately won the contest, 9-3.

These are Bill Welke (3)'s 3rd and 4th ejections of 2021.
Bill Welke now has 9 points in the UEFL Standings (5 Prev + 2*[2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable Call] = 9).
