MLB Ejection 059: Angel Hernandez (1; Ryne Sandberg)

HP Umpire Angel Hernandez ejected Phillies Manager Ryne Sandberg for arguing a ball (check swing) call made by 1B Umpire Scott Barry in the top of the 9th inning of the Rockies-Phillies game. With none out and two on, Rockies batter Nolan Arenado attempted to check his swing on a 2-2 fastball from Phillies pitcher Luis Garcia for a called third ball, affirmed as no swing by Barry. Play was reviewed and reversed by the UEFL Appeals Board (0-8-0), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Rockies were leading, 2-0. The Rockies ultimately won the contest, 4-1.

This is Angel Hernandez (55)'s first ejection of 2015.
Angel Hernandez now has x points in the UEFL Standings (2 Previous + 2 MLB + x Crewmate = x).
Crew Chief Ted Barrett now has x points in Crew Division (3 Previous + x Call = x).
(Appeals Board plays do not display league points.)

This is the 59th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 25th Manager ejection of 2015.
This is the Phillies' 1st ejection of 2015, 4th in the NL East (WAS 4; ATL, NYM 2; PHI 1; MIA 0).

This is Angel Hernandez's first ejection since July 8, 2014 (Jean Machi; QOC = Y [Balk]).
