MLB Ejections 009-013 - Jeff Kellogg (1-5; Puig CIN & PIT)

HP Umpire Jeff Kellogg ejected Reds Manager David Bell (arguing warnings), RF Yasiel Puig and pitcher Amir Garrett (fighting); and Pirates P Keone Kela and P Felipe Vasquez (fighting) in the top of the 4th inning of the Reds-Pirates game. With none out and one on (R1) in the top of the 2nd inning, Reds batter Derek Dietrich hit a home run. His next time at-bat, with none out and none on in the top of the 4th, Dietrich took a first-pitch fastball from Pirates pitcher Chris Archer for a called ball. Replays indicate Dietrich appeared to "admire" his home run in the second inning and that the 0-0 pitch to Dietrich in the fourth inning was thrown behind Dietrich's back and hip-high, resulting in warnings, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejections, the Reds were leading, 3-2. The Pirates ultimately won the contest, 7-5.

These are Jeff Kellogg (8)'s first through fifth ejections of the 2019 MLB regular season.
