Pitching in the bottom of the fourth for the Cubs against the Reds, Adbert Alzolay threw a pitch up and in on Shogo Akiyama. Some from the Reds’ bench, including Joey Votto, began yelling out in protest of the pitch.

Reds manager David Bell, as well as Votto and Jesse Winker, were all ejected from the game.

There is some background.

In the top of the fourth, Cubs manager David Ross was ejected after the Reds threw a pitch over Anthony Rizzo’s head.

Rizzo hit two home runs in the Cubs’ 3-0 win over the Reds earlier in the day in the first game of their doubleheader.

In total, five players were ejected from the second game of the doubleheader as of this story being published.
