Ejections: Delfin Colon (1, 2)

HP Umpire Delfin Colon ejected Astros first baseman Lance Berkman and Manager Cecil Cooper to end the bottom of the 5th inning of the Brewers-Astros game for arguing an out call. With two out and two on, Astros right fielder Hunter Pence hit a single to left field. As Berkman rounded third base on his way for the plate, Brewers left fielder Ryan Brawn threw the ball in to catcher Jason Kendall, who attempted to tag Berkman as he was sliding by. Replays indicate the tag was applied before Berkman's hand touched the ground; furthermore, Berkman's hand did not appear to have touched home plate since Kendall used his left leg to block access, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 3-1. The Brewers ultimately won the contest, 4-3.

These are Delfin Colon (90)'s first and second ejections of 2009.

These are the 40th and 41st ejections of 2009.
This is the 25th Manager ejection of 2009.
This is the 15th Player ejection of 2009.
Berkman was 1-2 in the contest prior to his ejection.
These are Delfin Colon's first and second Major League ejections.
