MLB Ejections 196-197: Marty Foster (4, 5; Garza, Roenicke)

HP Umpire Marty Foster ejected Brewers P Matt Garza and Manager Ron Roenicke for throwing at Pirates batter Andrew McCutchen in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Brewers-Pirates game. With two out and none on, McCutchen took a 1-2 fastball from Garza for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the inner edge of home plate and chest-high, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejections, the game was tied, 0-0. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 1-0.

These are Marty Foster (60)'s fourth and fifth ejections of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
Marty Foster now has 4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2*[2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable] = 4).
Crew Chief Joe West now has 23 points in Crew Division (21 Previous + 2 Irrecusable Calls = 23).

These are the 196th and 197th ejections of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 84th player ejection of 2014. Prior to his ejection, Garza's line was 4.2 IP, 0 ER.
This is the 89th Manager ejection of 2014.
This is the Brewers' 7/8th ejection of 2014, T-1st in the NL Central (CHC, MIL, PIT 8; STL 7; CIN 5).
This is Matt Garza's first ejection since Sept 14, 2013 (Joe West; QOC = Y-crewmate [Check Swing]).
This is Ron Roenicke's first ejection since Aug 27, 2014 (Mark Ripperger; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
