MLB Ejection 153: Bob Davidson (5; Bud Black)

HP Umpire Bob Davidson ejected Padres Manager Bud Black for arguing a Replay Review decision that upheld Davidson's out call in the top of the 9th inning of the Padres-Cardinals game. With one out and three on, Padres batter Jake Goebbert hit a 0-0 fastball from Cardinals pitcher Trevor Rosenthal on a line drive to right fielder Shane Robinson, who threw to catcher A.J. Pierzynski as Padres baserunner R2 Alexi Amarista slid into home plate. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Padres Manager Black, Davidson's ruling was affirmed. Replays indicate Pierzynski applied his tag on Amarista prior to Amarista's arrival at home plate, the call was correct. At the time of the review and ejection, the Cardinals were leading, 4-3. The Cardinals ultimately won the contest, 4-3.

This is Bob Davidson (61)'s fifth ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Bob Davidson now has 21 points in the UEFL Standings (17 Prev + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 21).
Crew Chief Bob Davidson now has 12 points in Crew Division (11 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 12).

This is the 153rd ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 73rd Manager ejection of 2014.
This is the Padres' third ejection of 2014, 5th in the NL West (COL, LAD 7; ARI 5; SF 4; SD 3).
