MLB Ejection 189 - Will Little (4; Pete Mackanin)

1B Umpire Will Little ejected Phillies Manager Pete Mackanin for arguing a check swing (ball two) call in the top of the 8th inning of the Mets-Phillies game. With one out and two on, Mets batter Yoenis Cespedes attempted to check his swing on a 1-2 fastball from Phillies pitcher Michael Mariot for a called second ball by HP Umpire Ted Barrett, affirmed on appeal as "no swing" by Little.
