MLB Ejection 064 - Vic Carapazza (2; Yunel Escobar)

HP Umpire Vic Carapazza ejected Angels 3B Yunel Escobar for arguing a strike two call in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Astros-Angels game. With none out and none on, Escobar took a 1-1 fastball from Astros pitcher Dallas Keuchel for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and at the hollow of the knee (px -.637, pz 1.508 [sz_bot 1.570 / MOE 1.487]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Astros were leading, 4-2. The Astros ultimately won the contest, 4-2.

This is Vic Carapazza (19)'s second ejection of the 2016 MLB regular season.
Vic Carapazza now has 8 points in the UEFL Standings (4 Previous + 2 MLB + 2 Correct Call = 8).
Crew Chief John Hirschbeck now has 12 points in Crew Division (11 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 12).

This is Anaheim's 3rd ejection of 2016, T-2nd in the AL West (TEX 4; HOU, LAA 3; OAK, SEA 0).
