MLB Ejections 099-100: Vic Carapazza (2, 3; Rangers)
In the 10th, with one out and none on, Rangers batter Michael Choice took a 3-2 changeup from Angels pitcher Mike Morin for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and below the hollow of the knees (px -.187, pz 1.171 / sz_bot 1.330), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 2-2. The Angels ultimately won the contest, 3-2, in 10 innings.
This is Vic Carapazza (19)'s second, third ejection of the 2014 MLB Regular Season.
*UEFL Rule 6-5-c.AR(5) precludes the 0-0 pitch from "realistically resulted in a different outcome" consideration.
