MLB Ejections S-4-7: Tom Woodring (S1-4; 4 D'Backs)

HP Umpire Tom Woodring ejected Diamondbacks pitcher Allen Webster, Manager Chip Hale, pitcher Derek Eitel and Bench Coach Glenn Sherlock for throwing at Dodgers batters Justin Turner and Dillon Moyer in the bottom of the 5th and 8th innings, respectively, of the Diamondbacks-Dodgers game. In the 1st inning, Dodgers pitcher Chris Anderson hit Diamondbacks batter Mark Trumbo and Diamondbacks pitcher Daniel Hudson hit Dodgers batter Turner with inside fastballs, leading to Woodring issuing warnings to both teams. In the 5th, with warnings in effect, Dodgers lead-off batter Turner took a 2-0 fastball from D'Backs pitcher Webster for a hit-by-pitch, and was injured and left the game as a result. In the 8th, Dodgers batter Dillon Moyer took a first-pitch fastball from D'Backs pitcher Eitel for a hit-by-pitch. Replays indicate both HBPs were inside (pitch f/x unavailable), the calls were irrecusable. At the time of the 5th inning ejections, the Dodgers were leading, 4-1. At the time of the 8th inning ejections, the game was tied, 4-4. The Dodgers ultimately won the contest, 7-4.
