MLB Ejection 127 - Cory Blaser (3; Craig Counsell)

HP Umpire Cory Blaser ejected Brewers Manager Craig Counsell (warnings) in the bottom of the 1st inning of the Brewers-Cardinals game. With two out and none on, Cardinals batter Tyler O'Neill took a first-pitch fastball from Brewers pitcher Wade Miley inside for a called first ball, resulting in warnings. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and thrown between O'Neill's feet; Brewers batter Lorenzo Cain had been hit by a pitch from Cardinals pitcher Miles Mikolas in the top of the 1st, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. The Cardinals ultimately won the contest, 7-2.
