MLB Ejection 139 - Bill Miller (2; Mark Kotsay)

1B Umpire Bill Miller ejected Athletics manager Mark Kotsay (check swing ball call) in the top of the 7th inning of the #Mariners-#Athletics game. With two out and one on (R3), Mariners batter Cal Raleigh attempted to check his swing on a 2-2 fastball from A's pitcher AJ Puk, ruled a ball by HP Umpire Doug Eddings and affirmed on appeal as no swing by 1B Umpire Miller. One pitch earlier, Raleigh took a 1-2 slider from Puk for a called second strike located off the outer edge of home plate and waist-high (px 1.08, pz 2.98 [Expected Call: Ball]). Kotsay was ejected two at-bats later, when HP Umpire Eddings called Ty France for a swinging strike as France attempted to check his swing on a 1-0 slider from A's pitcher Zach Jackson. Play was reviewed and adjudicated as a swinging strike by the UEFL Appeals Board (7-0), the call was INCORRECT. At the time of the ejection, the A's were leading, 4-3. The A's ultimately won the contest, 5-3.

This is Bill Miller (26)'s 2nd ejection of 2022.

This is the 139th ejection report of the 2022 MLB regular season.
