MLB Ejections 144-145 - Dan Merzel (2-3; Winker, Servais)

HP Umpire Dan Merzel ejected Mariners LF Jesse Winker and manager Scott Servais (strike three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 8th inning of the #Guardians-#Mariners game. With two out and one on (R1), Mariners batter Winker took a 2-2 curveball from Guardians pitcher James Karinchak for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and at the midpoint (px -0.36, pz 3.37 [sz_top 3.32 / RAD 3.44 / MOE 3.53]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 2-2. The Mariners ultimately won the contest, 3-2, in 11 innings.
