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.
"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.
