MLB Ejection 159 - Chad Fairchild (1; Max Scherzer)

2B Umpire Chad Fairchild ejected Mets bench player Max Scherzer (Replay Review decision that upheld HP Umpire Angel Hernandez's lodged ball call; QOCY) in the top of the 1st inning of the #Mets-#Marlins game. With none out and none on, Mets batter Brandon Nimmo hit a 2-2 sinker from Marlins pitcher Jesus Luzardo on a line drive to left field, initially ruled a stuck ball by HP Umpire Hernandez, and upheld via Replay Review after a manager's challenge by Mets manager Buck Showalter. Replays fail to conclusive indicate whether the batted ball lodged between the base of the outfield wall's padding and the warning track dirt, the "call stands" ruling was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Mets ultimately won the contest, 9-3.

This is Chad Fairchild (4)'s 1st ejection of 2022.
