MLB Ejection 048 - Dan Merzel (1; David Ross)

HP Umpire Dan Merzel ejected Cubs manager David Ross (warnings/ejection no-call for potential throwing at HBP) in the top of the 9th inning of the #Cubs-#Reds game. In the bottom of the 8th inning, with one out and one on (R1), Reds batter Joey Votto took a first-pitch fastball from Cubs pitcher Rowan Wick for a called ball, located near Votto's head. Upon walking on four pitches, Wick and Votto exchanged words. In the 9th, with one out and none on, Cubs batter Patrick Wisdom took a first-pitch fastball from Reds pitcher Hunter Strickland for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and struck Wisdom on the hand. The crew did not convene to determine intentionality and no warnings were issued, the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Reds were leading, 4-2. The Reds ultimately won the contest, 4-3.
