Schwarber got his 1st career ejection
Schwarber got his 1st career ejection

Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber was ejected on Sunday afternoon after being called out on a very high strike call by home plate umpire John Tumpane. The umpire was very demonstrative on the call and Schwarber lost his cool for a moment and had to be restrained by second baseman Javy Baez. At a previous at-bat, Schwarber had a questionable strike call on him also.

During the play, Schwarber actually spiked his bat in frustration on the called third strike. Cubs manager Joe Maddon went to talk to the umpire to make sure that Schwarber didn't get fined and try to diffuse the situation.

This was Schwarber's first ejection of his career.

Happ moved to left field to replace Schwarber and La Stella filled in at third base where Happ started.

At the end of the day, the Cubs won easily 6-1 over the Reds to win the series 3 games to 1.

Check out the video below:
