MLB Ejections 119-120: Pat Hoberg (2-3; Molina, Matheny)

HP Umpire Pat Hoberg ejected Cardinals C Yadier Molina and Manager Mike Matheny in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Cardinals-Cubs game. With two out and three on, Cubs batter Miguel Montero took a 2-2 fastball from Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha for a called third ball before hitting an ensuing pitch for a three-RBI double. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and knee high (px -.855, pz 1.700), the call was correct. At the time of the ejections, the Cubs were leading, 5-4. The Cardinals ultimately won the contest, 6-5.

These are Pat Hoberg (31)'s second and third ejections of 2015.
Pat Hoberg now has 17 points in the UEFL Standings (7 Previous + 2*[3 AAA + 2 Correct] = 17).
Crew Chief Ted Barrett now has -2 points in Crew Division (-4 Previous + 2 Correct Call = -2).
