Interim Cubs manager Green ejected vs. Pirates originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

The Cubs finished Friday’s game against the Pirates with their third-in-line manager after bench coach Andy Green was ejected.

Green was tossed in the sixth inning for arguing with second base umpire Tom Hallion. He appeared to be contesting Sergio Alcántara was interfered with after the Cubs shortstop made a throwing error.

Pittsburgh’s Kevin Newman slid into second base towards Alcántara as Alcántara attempted to finish a 4-6-3 double play. Alcántara’s throw sailed into the Pirates dugout.

As Green was walking back to the Cubs dugout, Hallion ejected him, and Green got his money’s worth. He slammed his hat to the ground and went back to arguing with Hallion.

Green is the Cubs acting manager after David Ross tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday. Ross will quarantine for at least 10 days.

It was initially unclear who was managing after Green’s ejection, but associate pitching, catching and strategy coach Mike Borzello was perched where Ross (and Green on Friday) typically stand in the Cubs dugout.
