MLB Ejection P-1: Jeff Nelson (3; Sean Rodriguez)

HP Umpire Jeff Nelson ejected Pirates 1B Sean Rodriguez for fighting in the top of the 7th inning of the Cubs-Pirates game. With two out and none on, Cubs batter Jake Arrieta took a 0-0 sinker from Pirates pitcher Tony Watson for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and struck Arrieta's hip, producing a bench-clearing brawl during which Rodriguez appeared to throw a punch, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Cubs were leading, 4-0. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 4-0.

This is Jeff Nelson (45)'s third ejection of 2015.
Jeff Nelson now has 15 points in the UEFL Standings (12 Previous + 3 MLB-PS + 0 Irrecusable = 15).
John Hirschbeck now has 19 points in Crew Division (18 Previous + 1 Irrecusable Call = 19).

This is the first ejection of the 2015 MLB Postseason and 213th overall ejection.
This is the 97th player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Rodriguez was 0-0 in the contest.
This is the Pirates' 9th ejection of 2015, T-1st in the NL Central (CIN, PIT 9; CHC, STL 8; MIL 6).
This is Sean Rodriguez's 2nd ejection of 2015, 1st since August 2 (Joe West; QOC = U [Fighting]).
This is Jeff Nelson's first ejection since August 30, 2015 (Jorge De La Rosa; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
