MLB Ejections 133|134 - Eric Cooper (2|3; Anderson, Weiss)

HP Umpire Eric Cooper ejected Rockies P Tyler Anderson for throwing at Phillies batter Maikel Franco and Rockies Manager Walt Weiss for arguing Anderson's ejection in the bottom of the 4th inning of the Rockies-Phillies game. With none out and none on, Franco took a first-pitch fastball from Anderson for a hit-by-pitch, having hit a three-run home run in his preceding at-bat. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and struck Franco on his knee, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Phillies were leading, 3-0. The Phillies ultimately won the contest, 6-3.
