MLB Ejection 142 - Mark Ripperger (3; JP Crawford)

HP Umpire Mark Ripperger ejected Mariners SS JP Crawford (strike three call; QOCN) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the #Nationals-#Mariners game. With two out and none on, Crawford took a 3-2 fastball from Nationals pitcher Carl Edwards Jr for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and at the midpoint (px -0.95, pz 3.43 [sz_top 3.30 / RAD 3.42 / MOE 3.50]), the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the Nationals were leading, 1-0. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 3-1. 

This is Mark Ripperger (90)'s 3rd ejection of 2022.
*UEFL Rule 6-2-b-1 (Kulpa Rule): |0| < STRIKE < |.748| < BORDERLINE < |.914| < BALL.
This pitch was located 0.43 horizontal inches from being deemed correct (it was vertically QOCY).

This is the 142nd ejection report of the 2022 MLB regular season.
This is the 44th player ejection of 2022. Prior to ejection, Crawford was 0-3 (SO) in the contest.
This is the Mariners' 8th ejection of 2022, 2nd in the AL West (LAA 9; SEA 8; HOU 7; OAK 5; TEX 2).
