 ATLANTA (AP) - Cincinnati manager Bryan Price and pitcher Homer Bailey were ejected in the first inning of Sunday's game against Atlanta after a replay ruling went against them.
Price asked for a replay after first-base umpire Greg Gibson called Atlanta's B.J. Upton safe on a pickoff throw from pitcher Johnny Cueto. The replays shown on the video board indicated first baseman Joey Votto may have applied the tag before Upton reached the bag.
Price came back out of the dugout after the safe call was confirmed. Price was ejected by crew chief Bill Miller, the second-base umpire. Miller also tossed Bailey, who argued from the Reds' dugout.
The ejections were the first for the Reds since Brandon Phillips on Sept. 1, 2012, at Houston. The last Reds manager to be ejected was Dusty Baker on Aug. 28, 2011.
