Dodgers third baseman Max Muncy hits the bench early after getting ejected in the 4th inning of Sunday’s contest against the Cardinals. Muncy was ejected after chirping with home plate umpire about a strike three call, but that isn’t what got him tossed. As he was walking back to the dugout, he started sounding off again and pointed his bat at the third base umpire and home plate umpire.
The third base umpire was Paul Emmel, the guy whose terrible strike three call against Mookie Betts on Saturday night cost the Dodgers a comeback attempt.
Manage Dave Roberts hung around to give Emmel an earful at third but did stay in the game.
Chris Taylor replaced Muncy at third base in the bottom of the inning.
