PHILADELPHIA (AP) Phillies pitcher Roberto Hernandez has been ejected in the sixth inning after hitting Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro with a pitch.
Hernandez was immediately tossed by plate umpire Mark Ripperger after his fastball nailed Castro on the left arm. Castro hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning on Friday night. There were no previous warnings, hit batters or inside pitches.
Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg also was ejected after he came out to argue the decision. Hernandez threw his hands up in the air and seemed very surprised.
