MLB Ejection 199: Jeff Nelson (7; Rick Renteria)
This is Jeff Nelson (45)'s seventh ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Jeff Nelson now has 20 points in the UEFL Standings (16 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 20).
Crew Chief Jeff Nelson now has 10 points in Crew Division (9 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 10).
*Rule 8.05 PENALTY states that if a balk is committed, "The ball is dead, and each runner shall advance one base without liability to be put out, unless the batter reaches first on a hit, an error, a base on balls, a hit batter, or otherwise, and all other runners advance at least one base, in which case the play proceeds without reference to the balk." In other words, the ball is dead unless R1/2/3 and B1 all advance at least one base. Because R2 and B1 advanced a base, the ball was not dead.
This is the 199th ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 90th Manager ejection of 2014.
This is the Cubs' 9th ejection of 2014, 1st in the NL Central (CHC 9; MIL, PIT 8; STL 7; CIN 5).

This is Jeff Nelson's first ejection since Sept 23, 2014 (Yoenis Cespedes; QOC = N [Balls/Strikes]).
