MLB Ejections 131-132 - Bruce Dreckman (1-2; LAA x2)

HP Umpire Bruce Dreckman ejected Angels pitcher Deck McGuire and Manager Mike Scioscia (throwing at Astros batter Yuli Gurriel with warnings in effect) in the top of the 9th inning of the Astros-Angels game. With two out and none on, Gurriel took a 1-1 fastball from McGuire for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and hit Gurriel in the upper left leg, following two HBP from earlier in the game with both teams having been warned, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 8-3. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 8-3.

These are Bruce Dreckman (1)'s first and second ejections of 2018.
Bruce Dreckman now has 3 points in the UEFL Standings (-1 Prev + 2*[2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable] = 3).
