MLB Ejection 138: Will Little (3; Mike Matheny)

2B Umpire Will Little ejected Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny for arguing a Replay Review decision that upheld Little's safe call in the top of the 6th inning of the Brewers-Cardinals game. With none out and one on, Brewers batter Elian Herrera hit a 0-1 cutter from Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright on a line drive to second baseman Kolten Wong, who threw to shortstop Jhonny Peralta as Brewers baserunner R1 Jean Segura arrived at second base. Upon Replay Review, Little's ruling was affirmed as replays indicate Peralta did not catch the ball and tag second base prior to Segura's touch arrival, the call was correct. At the time of the review, the Brewers were leading, 3-0. At the time of the ejection, the Brewers were leading, 6-0. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 7-4.

This is Will Little (93)'s third ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Will Little now has 22 points in the UEFL Standings (17 Prev + 3 AAA + 2 Correct Call = 22).
Crew Chief Gerry Davis now has 6 points in Crew Division (5 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 6).

This is the 138th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 63rd Manager ejection of 2014.
This is the Cardinals' 4th ejection of 2014, T-3rd in the NL Central (PIT 8; CHC 7; MIL, STL 4; CIN 3).
This is Mike Matheny's first ejection since May 16, 2014 (Sean Barber; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
