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.

CUBS HONOR GREAT: A statue of Billy Williams that portrays the Hall of Famer finishing his sweet left-handed swing was dedicated by the Cubs outside Wrigley Field. Williams was accompanied at the ceremony by his wife, Shirley.

JORGE GIVES BACK: Yankees C Jorge Posada is celebrating his 1,000th RBI with a fundraiser for his family's charity foundation. A T-shirt commemorating his achievement will be sold with net proceeds going to the Jorge Posada Foundation, named after Jorge and wife Laura's 10-year-old son, Jorge Luis. The boy has a rare disease called craniosynostosis that causes bones in the skull to fuse prematurely.
