Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon ejected in 5th of Brewers game

MILWAUKEE (AP) Cincinnati Reds starter Alfredo Simon was ejected in the fifth inning of Saturday's game against Milwaukee after hitting Brewers starter Chase Anderson with a pitch.

Plate umpire James Hoye threw Simon out of the game immediately after Anderson, a right-hander, got plunked in the left shoulder leading off the fifth.

An inning earlier, Anderson had hit Simon with a pitch with two outs, a sequence that thwarted Tyler Holt's potential steal of home with the Reds trailing by a run.

Holt moved to third after doubling home a run earlier in the fourth. Anderson stumbled off the rubber out of his windup as the ball sailed wide and hit Simon in the waist.

Simon slammed his bat down and glared toward the mound.
