MLB Ejections 051-52 - Chris Segal (1-2; Machado, Melvin)

HP Umpire Chris Segal ejected Padres 3B Manny Machado and manager Bob Melvin (strike three call; QOCY) in the top of the 6th inning of the #Padres-#Cardinals game. With two out and none on, Padres batter Machado took a 2-2 sinker from Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and above the hollow of the knee (px 0.57, pz 1.85 [sz_bot 1.76 / RAD 1.64]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were officiated properly, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Cardinals were leading, 2-0. The Cardinals ultimately won the contest, 3-2, in 10 innings.

These are Chris Segal (96)'s 1st and 2nd ejections of 2022.
Chris Segal now has 8 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2*[2 MLB + 2 Correct Call] = 8).
Crew Chief Ted Barrett now has 5 points in Crew Division (3 Prev + 2 Correct Calls = 5).
*This pitch was located 3.55 vertical inches from being deemed incorrect.

This is San Diego's 2/3rd ejection of 2022, T-1st in the NL West (ARI, SD 3; LAD, SF 1; COL 0).
