MLB Ejections 60-61 - Ron Kulpa (2-3; STL-MIL Fight)

2B Umpire Ron Kulpa ejected Cardinals Manager Mike Shildt and Brewers Manager Craig Counsell (fighting following catcher's interference) in the bottom of the 5th inning of the #Cardinals-#Brewers game. With one out and the bases loaded, Brewers batter Ryan Braun swung at a 2-2 slider from Cardinals pitcher Rob Kaminsky, resulting in a catcher's interference call by HP Umpire John Bacon as Braun's bat made contact with catcher Yadier Molina's wrist/mitt, further resulting in a benches-clearing incident. Replays indicate that prior to the catcher's interference, Braun and Molina entered into a dispute regarding purported pitch framing by Molina, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejections, the Brewers were leading, 13-2. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 18-3. 

These are Ron Kulpa (46)'s second and third ejections of 2020.
Ron Kulpa now has 10 points in the UEFL Standings (6 Prev + 2*[2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable Call] = 10).
