MLB Ejections 197-9 - Nic Lentz (6-8; PIT x3)

HP Umpire Nic Lentz ejected Pirates manager Derek Shelton, bench coach Don Kelly, and pitching coach Oscar Marin (ball four call to Luke Maile; QOCY) in the top of the 6th inning of the #Reds-#Pirates game. With two out and two on, Maile took a 3-2 fastball from Pirates pitcher Cody Bolton for a called fourth ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner edge of home plate and above the midpoint (px -0.78, pz 3.61 [sz_top 3.14 / RAD 3.26]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Pirates were leading, 4-3. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 6-5, in 10 innings.

These are Nic Lentz (59)'s sixth, seventh, and eighth ejections of 2023.
