Redbirds manager is ejected in 9th inning as Memphis falls to Nashville (video)

September 3, 2009

The Redbird’s manager – Chris Maloney – was not happy all evening with calls made by home plate umpire Mike Jarboe. Of course, Maloney tends to whine more than most PCL managers I’ve noticed this season.

Anyway, the Redbirds lost the lead tonight in the bottom of the 7th when Adam Heether hit a two-run homer to make it 7-6.

Memphis came to the plate in the top of the 9th and Maloney – who was serving as the 3B coach – started jawing with Jarboe about some called strikes.  I was right behind the plate and the calls were solid.

After Shane Robinson popped out in foul territory to Mat Gamel at third (for out #2), Maloney ran toward home and lost his lid.

Watch the scene yourself.

    I sit behind homeplate, front row of section N, and thought the ump’s calls were a little inconsistent, but not on that at bat. The batter tried to crouch down to get a ball 4 call and was ticked off when the ump didn’t bite. I thought Maloney was just trying to rally his guys for a run or two. Glad it didn’t work.
