MLB Ejection 199: Alfonso Marquez (3; Pat Murphy)

HP Umpire Alfonso Marquez ejected Padres Interim Manager Pat Murphy for arguing a strike two call in the top of the 8th inning of the Padres-Diamondbacks game. With two out and two on, Padres batter Brett Wallace took a 3-1 sinker from Diamondbacks pitcher Brad Ziegler for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px -.729, pz 1.479 [sz_bot 1.62 / MOE 1.54]), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Diamondbacks were leading, 6-4. The Diamondbacks ultimately won the contest, 6-4.

This is Alfonso Marquez (72)'s third ejection of 2015.
Alfonso Marquez now has 5 points in the UEFL Standings (7 Previous + 2 MLB - 4 Incorrect = 5).
Crew Chief Tom Hallion now has 1 point in Crew Division (1 Previous + 1 Irrecusable Call = 4).

This is the 199th ejection of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 95th Manager ejection of 2015.
This is the Padres' 17th ejection of 2015, 1st in the NL West (SD 17; LAD, SF 8; COL 5; ARI 4).
This is Pat Murphy's 5th ejection of 2015, 1st since August 25 (David Rackley; QOC = U [USC-DiMuro]).
