MLB Ejections 033-34 - Adam Beck (2-3; MIL x2)

HP Umpire Adam Beck ejected Brewers manager Craig Counsell and SS Willy Adames (time out request/Scherzer rule no-call and automatic strike [pitch clock violation]; QOCY) in the bottom of the 6th inning of the #Angels-#Brewers game. With two out and none on, Brewers batter Willy Adames, with a 1-0 count, claimed Angels pitcher Jaime Barria had violated the Max Scherzer rule pertaining to pitchers prohibited from coming set prior to the batter in the box and alert to the pitcher. Replays indicate Barria was pitching from Windup and not Set Position, and thus, was not subject to the Scherzer rule prohibiting a pitcher from coming set (since one does not "come set" in Windup Position although the hands to physically meet prior to delivery). A pitch clock violation was subsequently issued while Adames was arguing the prior pitch's no-call, resulting in an automatic strike added to the count when Adames was not in the batter's box and alert to the pitcher for the ensuing 1-1 pitch. By rule, this is the proper enforcement, the call was correct.* At the time of the ejections, the Brewers were leading, 7-1. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 7-5.
