Ejections carry over from field into stands

MILWAUKEE — A player, a manager, a coach and even a fan were ejected Tuesday night during the Brewers' victory over the Cardinals.

In the second, Milwaukee manager Ken Macha was thrown out by second-base umpire Tim Timmons while arguing a call that cost the Brewers a run.

Cardinals pitching coach Dave Duncan was ejected from the dugout by home-plate umpire Bob Davidson in the third for arguing a called ball on a pitch from starter Kyle Lohse to Corey Hart.

In the fifth, Milwaukee CF Chris Dickerson was called out on strikes and slammed his helmet down while walking back to the dugout, getting an immediate ejection from Davidson.

In the bottom of the seventh, Davidson stopped the game, walked to the stands near the backstop netting and motioned for a fan wearing a T-shirt with a Brewers logo on it to leave his seat. An usher motioned for him, and the fan stood and posed with his arms extended in a V shape while drawing loud cheers.
