MLB Ejection 229 - Phil Cuzzi (4; Alex Cintron)

HP Umpire Phil Cuzzi ejected Astros hitting coach Alex Cintron (strike one call to Jose Abreu; QOCN) in the bottom of the 6th inning of the #Orioles-#Astros game. With none out and one on, Abreu took a first-pitch fastball from Orioles pitcher DL Hall for a called first strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and above the midpoint (px 0.24, pz 3.63 [sz_top 3.38 / RAD 3.50 / MOE 3.58]), the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the Orioles were leading, 7-3. The Orioles ultimately won the contest, 9-5.

This is Phil Cuzzi (10)'s 4th ejection of 2023.
*This pitch was located 0.60 vertical inches from being deemed a correct call.
