MLB Ejection 138 - Chris Segal (3; Mike Matheny)

HP Umpire Chris Segal ejected Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny ("Time" call as a result of pitcher's unjustified delay; QOCU) in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Cardinals-Red Sox game. With one out and two on (R1, R2), Red Sox batter Eduardo Nunez prepared to receive Cardinals pitcher John Brebbia's 0-2 offering, Segal called "Time" following a lengthy delay out of Set Position by Brebbia. Replays indicate that after coming set, Brebbia remained in this pre-pitch state for seven seconds before Segal called time after feeling the delay was not justified pursuant to Official Baseball Rule 5.04(b)(2) Comment, the call was irrecusable.* At the time of the ejection, the Cardinals were leading, 4-3. The Red Sox ultimately won the contest, 5-4.

This is Chris Segal (96)'s third ejection of the 2017 MLB regular season.
Chris Segal now has 15 points in the UEFL Standings (12 Prev + 3 AAA + 0 Irrecusable Call = 15).
Crew Chief Tom Hallion now has 12 points in Crew Division (11 Previous + 1 Irrecusable Call = 12).
*OBR 5.04(b)(2) Comment: "If pitcher delays once the batter is in his box and the umpire feels that the delay is not justified he may allow the batter to step out of the box momentarily." The batted need not request "Time."

This is the 138th ejection report of 2017.
This is the 68th Manager ejection of 2017.
This is St. Louis' 4th ejection of 2017, T-2nd in the NL Central (CIN, MIL 5; PIT, STL 4; CHC 2).
