MLB Ejections 096-97 - Roberto Ortiz (1-2; PIT & MIL)

HP Umpire Roberto Ortiz ejected Pirates manager Derek Shelton (strike three call; QOCY) in the top of the 7th and Brewers LF Christian Yelich (check swing strike three call by 3B Umpire Doug Eddings) in the bottom of the 9th inning of the #Pirates-#Brewers game. In the 7th, with none out and one on (R2, R3), Pirates batter Bryan Reynolds took a 3-2 fastball from Brewers pitcher Brad Boxberger for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and knee-high (px -0.91, pz 1.59 [sz_bot 1.54 / RAD 1.42]), the call was correct.* At the time of Shelton's ejection, the Brewers were leading, 3-1.

In the 9th, with none out and none on, Brewers batter Christian Yelich attempted to check his swing on a 1-2 splitter from Pirates pitcher David Bednar, ruled a ball by HP Umpire Ortiz and a swinging third strike on appeal by 3B Umpire Eddings. Play was reviewed and adjudicated by the UEFL Appeals Board (0-7), the call was incorrect. At the time of Yelich's ejection, the Pirates were leading, 4-3. The Pirates ultimately won the contest, 4-3.
