MLB Ejection 027: Alan Porter (2; Rick Renteria)

HP Umpire Alan Porter ejected Cubs Manager Rick Renteria for arguing a ball three call in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Cubs-Reds game. With two out and two on, Reds batter Joey Votto took a 2-2 fastball from Cubs pitcher Zac Rosscup for a called third ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and thigh high (px -1.174, pz 2.707) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated (B1: px -1.737, B2: px -1.305), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Reds were leading, 3-2. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

This is Alan Porter (64)'s second ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Alan Porter now has 5 points in the UEFL (1 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 5).
Chief Joe West now has 1 point in the UEFL's Crew Division (0 Prev + 1 Correct = 1).

This is the 27th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 8th Manager ejection of 2014.
This is the Cubs' 3rd ejection of 2014, 1st in the NL Central (CHC 3; CIN, MIL 2; PIT, STL 1).
This is Rick Renteria's first ejection since April 8, 2014 (Jeff Nelson; QOC = Y).
This is Alan Porter's first ejection since April 13, 2014 (Elvis Andrus; QOC = Y).
