MLB Ejection 154 - Jeff Nelson (2; John Schneider)

HP Umpire Jeff Nelson ejected Blue Jays interim manager John Schneider (ball three call; QOCY) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the #BlueJays-#Orioles game. With one out and none on, Orioles batter Ryan Mountcastle took a 2-0 slider from Blue Jays pitcher Yimi Garcia for a called third ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px 0.80, pz 1.40 [sz_bot 1.76 / RAD 1.64]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Orioles were leading, 6-5. The Orioles ultimately won the contest, 9-6.

This is Jeff Nelson (45)'s 2nd ejection of 2022.
