Benches clear, 5 ejected from Cincinnati Reds-Chicago Cubs game

A few of high fastballs led to the benches clearing and five ejections in between the Cincinnati Reds and Chicago Cubs in Recreation 2 of their doubleheader Saturday.

Reds commencing pitcher Tejay Antone threw a 96-mph fastball that sailed about Anthony Rizzo’s head in the fourth inning. Rizzo and the Cubs’ bench evidently took exception to it. Antone looked at his hand soon after he threw the pitch. 

The umpires huddled and issued warnings to both benches. Just after detailing the warnings to professionals from both of those groups, household-plate umpire Nic Lentz ejected Cubs catching mentor Mike Borzello from the dugout. Cubs manager David Ross came out of the dugout to argue and was ejected. 

It was the to start with time Ross was ejected in his managerial profession. 

“That was intentional,” Ross stated afterward. “No doubt in my mind.”
