MLB Ejection 31 - Nestor Ceja (1; Martin Maldonado)

HP Umpire Nestor Ceja ejected Astros bench player Martin Maldonado (warnings) in the bottom of the 2nd inning of the #Astros-#Padres game. With one out and two on, Padres batter Trent Grisham hit a home run off Astros pitcher Brandon Bielak, his second of the game, to give San Diego a 6-1 lead. Subsequent Padres batter Fernando Tatis then took a first-pitch changeup from Bielak for a hit-by-pitch, resulting in a crew consultation and issuance of warnings. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and struck Tatis on his left thigh, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Padres were leading, 6-1. The Padres ultimately won the contest, 13-2.
