Ejections: Chris Conroy (1)

1B Umpire Chris Conroy ejected Pirates Manager Clint Hurdle for arguing an out call in top of the 7th inning of the Pirates-Brewers game. With none out and two on, Pirates batter Neil Walker grounded in a double play to Brewers second basemen Richie Weeks to shortstop Craig Counsel to first basemen Prince Fielder . Replays indicate Fielder had possession of the ball and was touching the base before Walker touched the base. The call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Brewers led the contest, 2-1. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 8-2.

This is Chris Conroy (98)'s first ejection of 2011.
Chris Conroy now has 5 points in the Umpire Ejection Fantasy League (0 Previous + 3 AAA + 2 Correct Call = 5).
Chris Conroy was not drafted in 2011.

This is the 37th ejection of 2011.
This is the 19th manager ejection of 2011.
This is Conroy's first career MLB ejection.

He was out. Very good call.

Yeah, really close, a great call. I think Hurdle and the Pirates were upset at the overall awfulness of the umpiring in this series. Both the Brewers and the Pirates were the victims of some terrible (and pretty obvious) calls.

Apparently Mike Winters tossed Joe Girardi tonight.

Great call. Very close but nowhere near as close as Adrian Johnson's from earlier this season.

Gotta love the homer announcer: "I don't care what the replay shows, I thought he came off the bag early!"
