MLB Ejections 132-133: Carapazza (3-4; Ward, Leone)

HP Umpire Vic Carapazza ejected Diamondbacks Hitting Coach Turner Ward for arguing a warnings/ejection non-call in the bottom of the 6th and Diamondbacks P Dominic Leone for throwing at Marlins batter Christian Yelich in the top of the 7th inning of the Marlins-Diamondbacks game. In the 6th, with two out and none on, Diamondbacks batter David Peralta took a 0-2 fastball from Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez for a hit by pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and hit Peralta on the helmet, the call was irrecusable (No batters had been hit by pitches in the game prior to Peralta). In the 7th, with two out and none on, Marlins batter Yelich took a 2-0 fastball from Diamondbacks pitcher Leone for a hit by pitch. Replays indicate the pitch was located inside and hit Yelich on the backside, the call was irrecusable. At the time of both ejections, the Marlins were leading, 5-2. The Marlins ultimately won the contest, 5-3.

These are Vic Carapazza (19)'s third and fourth ejections of 2015.
