MLB Ejection 066 - Jeff Kellogg (1; Joe Maddon)

3B Umpire Jeff Kellogg ejected Cubs Manager Joe Maddon (Replay Review; HR/Foul call by 1B Umpire Clint Fagan) in the top of the 1st inning of the Cubs-Pirates game. With none out and none on, Cubs batter Anthony Rizzo hit a 2-2 fastball from Pirates pitcher Trevor Williams on a fly ball to deep right field near and past the foul pole, initially ruled fair by 1B Umpire Fagan and reversed to a foul ball after umpire consultation. Upon Replay Review as the result of a Crew Chief Review by Kellogg, the foul call stood, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 9-5.
