MLB Ejections: Mark Carlson (2, 3; Johnson, Upton)
In the 9th, with none out and none on, Upton took a 1-1 slider from Nationals pitcher Rafael Soriano for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and belt-high (px .083, pz 3.282 / sz_top 3.72), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Nationals were leading, 4-1. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 4-1.
