MLB Ejection 039: DJ Reyburn (1; Joe Maddon)

HP Umpire DJ Reyburn ejected Cubs Manager Joe Maddon for arguing a strike one call in the top of the 6th inning of the Cubs-Cardinals game. With none out and none on, Cubs batter Starlin Castro took a 1-0 fastball from Cardinals pitcher Lance Lynn for a called first strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and below the midpoint (px 0.514, pz 3.384 / sz_top 3.470), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Cubs were leading, 5-2. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 6-5.

This is DJ Reyburn (70)'s first ejection of 2015.
DJ Reyburn now has 5 points in the UEFL Standings (1 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 5).
Crew Chief John Hirschbeck now has 7 points in Crew Division (6 Prev + 1 Correct Call = 7).
