MLB Ejection 159: Fieldin Culbreth (2; Craig Counsell)

2B Umpire Fieldin Culbreth ejected Brewers Manager Craig Counsell for arguing a Replay Review decision that overturned Culbreth's out call in the top of the 7th inning of the Phillies-Brewers game. With two out and two on, Brewers pitcher Will Smith attempted to pick off Phillies baserunner R2 Chase Utley at second base on a throw to Brewers shortstop Jean Segura. Upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Phillies Manager Pete Mackanin, Culbreth's out call was overturned and Utley was ruled safe, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 2-2. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 4-2.

This is Fieldin Culbreth (25)'s second ejection of 2015.
Fieldin Culbreth now has 9 points in the UEFL Standings (7 Previous + 2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable = 9).
Crew Chief Fieldin Culbreth now has 7 points in Crew Division (6 Previous + 1 Irrecusable Call = 7).

This is the 159th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 75th Manager ejection of 2015.
This is the Brewers' 6th ejection of 2015, T-3rd in the NL Central (CIN, PIT 7; CHC, MIL 6; STL 5).
