CINCINNATI -- Less than three minutes after the Cubs and Reds sat through a rain delay lasting over an hour, the third of the night, Cubs manager Rick Renteria was tossed from Chicago's 3-2 loss to Cincinnati on Tuesday by home-plate umpire Alan Porter.

Renteria was unhappy with the balls and strikes calls from the umpire with Zac Rosscup pitching to Joey Votto.

"He tossed me because you can't questions balls and strikes, obviously," Renteria said. "And that's what I was doing."

Play had just resumed in the sixth inning on a cold, rainy night at Great American Ball Park when Renteria was tossed. Votto ended up striking out just as Renteria headed to the clubhouse.

The Reds were ahead, 3-2, at the time of the ejection.
