8/28 Sveum ejected
Cubs manager Dale Sveum was ejected in the first inning Wednesday for arguing a checked swing call during Dodgers leadoff batter Yasiel Puig’s at-bat. The count was 2-2, and Chicago starter Edwin Jackson thought the Dodgers outfielder had gone around on the next pitch, a fastball, rather than check his swing in time. Sveum challenged the call, and was ejected by first base umpire Lance Barksdale. It was Sveum’s sixth ejection this season, and the earliest.
