Louisville closer Michael McAvene was ejected from his team’s 9-7 win over Indiana on Sunday with two outs and two strikes in the ninth inning.
McAvane appeared to say “that’s horrible” after a call by the home plate umpire, who then tossed him out of the game.

I get it, they don’t want pitchers complaining, but as an Ump you also have to use discretion, take into account the game.
Is it time for automated strike zones yet?
