MLB Ejection 139 - Chris Conroy (3; Joe Maddon)

1B Umpire Chris Conroy ejected Cubs Manager Joe Maddon (check swing dead ball strike call) in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Reds-Cubs game. With none out and two on (R1, R2), Cubs batter Ben Zobrist attempted to check his swing/bunt on a 0-1 fastball from Reds pitcher Wandy Peralta, resulting in the pitched ball hitting Zobrist's knee. Play was reviewed and adjudicated by the UEFL Appeals Board (6-3-0), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 6-6. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 7-6.
