MLB Ejection 172: Chris Segal (3; Matt Carpenter)

HP Umpire Chris Segal ejected Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 5th inning of the Cardinals-Padres game. With one out and two on, Carpenter took a 0-2 fastball from Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and belt high (px -1.154, pz 2.28), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Padres were leading, 1-0. The Padres ultimately won the contest, 8-0.

This is Chris Segal (96)'s third ejection of 2015.
Chris Segal now has 3 points in the UEFL Standings (5 Previous + 2 AAA/Penalty - 4 Incorrect = 3).
Crew Chief Tim Welke now has 8 points in Crew Division (8 Previous + 0 Incorrect Call = 8).

This is the 172nd ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 75th player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Carpenter was 0-3 (2 SO) in the contest.
This is the Cardinals' 6th ejection of 2015, T-3rd in the NL Central (CIN, PIT 7; CHC, MIL, STL 6).
