MLB Ejections 154-155 - Adrian Johnson, Jeremy Riggs (MIL x2)

2B Umpire Adrian Johnson ejected Brewers bench coach Pat Murphy (Unsportmsanlike-NEC) during the pre-game plate meeting and HP Umpire Jeremy Riggs ejected Brewers 1B Rowdy Tellez (balls/strikes; QOCY) in the top of the 6th inning of the #Brewers-#Twins game. Prior to the game, Murphy began arguing with 3B Umpire Brian Gorman, resulting in an ejection from Johnson for unsportsmanlike conduct. Replays indicate no calls occurred in the game prior to this ejection, the call was irrecusable. At the time of Murphy's ejection, the game was tied, 0-0. In the 6th, Brewers batter Rowdy Tellez struck out swinging after taking a 2-0 slider from Twins pitcher Caleb Thielbar for a called first strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -0.67, pz 1.47 [sz_bot 1.63 / RAD 1.51 / MOE 1.42]), the call was correct. At the time of Tellez's ejection, the game was tied, 4-4. The Twins ultimately won the contest, 6-4.
