MLB Ejection 075 - Paul Emmel (3; Max Muncy)

3B Umpire Paul Emmel ejected Dodgers 3B Max Muncy (strike three call by HP Umpire Nic Lentz; QOCY) in the top of the 4th inning of the #Dodgers-#Cardinals game. With one out and none on, Muncy took a 2-2 fastball from Cardinals pitcher Jack Flaherty for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and above the hollow of the knee (px -0.41, pz 1.55 [sz_bot 1.55 / RAD 1.43]), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the Cardinals were leading, 3-1. The Cardinals ultimately won the contest, 10-5.
