After Four Pitches, Zach Greinke Was Ejected For Spiking The Ball Out Of Frustration

July 7, 2012 – Evan Stambaugh

After a misplay in center field that got a runner on third base, Brewers starting pitcher Zack Greinke got Jose Altuve to hit a ground ball to first. Greinke tried to cover the bag for first baseman Corey Hart, but Sam Holbrook, the ump at first base, called Altuve safe. Because he was frustrated, Greinke threw the ball into the ground, which then caused Holbrook to throw him out of the game. Then, Brewers skipper Ron Roenicke made his way out of the dugout to get himself ejected, too. All of this happened after Greinke threw only four pitches. From there, the Brewers had to use their bullpen for the rest of the game. They ended up losing to the Astros 6-3. Greinke received the loss. [via MLB]
