MLB Ejection 141 - Gabe Morales (2; Adolis Garcia)

HP Umpire Gabe Morales ejected Rangers RF Adolis Garcia (strike one call; QOCN) in the top of the 8th inning of the #Rangers-#Nationals game. With none out and none on, Garcia took a first-pitch fastball from Nats pitcher Kyle Finnegan for a called first strike before striking out swinging to end the at-bat. Replays indicate the pitch ruled strike one was located over the heart of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px -0.26, pz 1.47 [sz_bot 1.70 / RAD 1.58 / MOE 1.50]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Nationals were leading, 8-3. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 8-3.
