MLB Ejection 166 - Andy Fletcher (1; Kevin Long)

HP Umpire Andy Fletcher ejected Phillies hitting coach Kevin Long (strike three call; QOCN) in the bottom of the 5th inning of the #Braves-#Phillies game. With none out and none on, Phillies batter Dalton Guthrie took a 3-2 slider from Braves pitcher Max Fried for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px 0.59, pz 1.08 [sz_bot 1.51 / RAD 1.39 / MOE 1.33]), the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the Phillies were leading, 1-0. The Phillies ultimately won the contest, 1-0.

This is Andy Fletcher (49)'s 1st ejection of 2022.
*This pitch was located 3.00 vertical inches from being ruled a correct call.

This is the 166th ejection report of the 2022 MLB regular season.
This is Philadelphia's 3rd ejection of 2022, 3rd in the NL East (MIA 9; WAS 4; PHI 3; ATL, NYM 2).
This is Kevin Long's 1st ejection since August 12, 2021 (Alan Porter; QOC = Y-c [Balls/Strikes]).
