MLB Ejections 204-205: Dreckman (2-3; Rondon, Maddon)

HP Umpire Bruce Dreckman ejected Cubs P Hector Rondon and Manager Joe Maddon for throwing at Cardinals batter Greg Garcia in the top of the 9th inning of the Cardinals-Cubs game. With none out and none on, Garcia took a 1-2 fastball for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate the pitch struck Garcia on his left torso; warnings had previously been issued, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejections, the Cubs were leading, 5-1. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 5-4.

These are Bruce Dreckman (1)'s second and third ejections of 2015.
Bruce Dreckman now has 7 points in the UEFL Standings (3 Previous + 2*[2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable] = 7).
