MLB Ejection 072: Todd Tichenor (1; Rick Renteria)

HP Umpire Todd Tichenor ejected Chicago Cubs Manager Rick Renteria for arguing a ball one call in the top of the 3rd inning of the Mets-Cardinals game. With one out and none on, Mets batter Curtis Granderson took a 0-0 slider from Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson for a called first ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px -.8, pz 1.444 / sz_bot 1.53), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Mets were leading, 3-2. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 5-4.

This is Todd Tichenor (97)'s first ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Todd Tichenor now has 2 points in the UEFL Standings (-2 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 2).
Crew Chief Tim Welke now has 11 points in Crew Division (10 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 11).

This is the 72nd ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 28th Manager ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the Cubs' 6th ejection of 2014, 1st in the NL Central (CHC 6; PIT, STL 3; CIN, MIL 2).
