HP Umpire John Libka ejected Cardinals 3B Nolan Arenado (check swing strike three call) in the top of the 3rd inning of the #Cardinals-#Cubs game. With two out and two on (R1, R2), Arenado attempted to check his swing on a 3-2 fastball from Cubs pitcher Luke Farrell, ruled a swinging strike by HP Umpire Libka. Play was reviewed and adjudicated by the UEFL Appeals Board, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Cubs were leading, 3-0. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 7-1.
