MLB Ejections 201-202: Dan Bellino (4-5; Belisle, Matheny)

HP Umpire Dan Bellino ejected Cardinals P Matt Belisle and Manager Mike Matheny for throwing at Cubs batter Anthony Rizzo in the bottom of the 7th inning of the Cardinals-Cubs game. With two out and none on, Rizzo took a 0-0 fastball from Belisle for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and hit Rizzo on the left pant leg; warnings had previously been issued, the call was correct. At the time of the ejections, the Cubs were leading, 8-3. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 8-3.

These are Dan Bellino (2)'s fourth and fifth ejections of 2015.
Dan Bellino now has 10 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Previous + 2*[2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable] = 10).
