MLB Ejection 134 - Will Little (4; Brian Snitker)

HP Umpire Will Little ejected Braves manager Brian Snitker (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the #Mets-#Braves game. With two out and one on (R3), Braves batter Austin Riley attempted to check his swing on a 2-2 fastball from Mets pitcher Max Scherzer, called a strike based on pitch location by HP Umpire Little. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and at the midpoint (px 0.51, pz 3.54 [sz_top 3.47 / RAD 3.60]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Mets were leading, 4-1. The Mets ultimately won the contest, 9-7.

This is Will Little (93)'s 4th ejection of 2022.
Will Little now has 13 points in the UEFL Standings (9 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 13).
Crew Chief Mike Estabrook now has 3 points in Crew Division (2 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 3).
*This pitch was located 1.72 vertical inches from being deemed a correct call.
