Ejection 113: Alfonso Marquez (2)

1B Umpire Alfonso Marquez ejected Diamondbacks right fielder Justin Upton for arguing a strike three call made by HP Umpire Larry Vanover in the top of the 7th inning of the Diamondbacks-Pirates game. With two out and three on, Diamondbacks batter Chris Young took a 1-2 sinker from Pirates pitcher Tony Watson for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was thigh high and over the inside corner of the plate, the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Pirates were leading, 7-5. The Pirates ultimately won the contest, 7-6.

This is Alfonso Marquez (72)'s second ejection of 2012.
Alfonso Marquez now has 1 point in the UEFL (-2 Previous + 2 MLB + 1 Correct Call [Crewmate] = 1).
Crew Chief Brian O'Nora now has 2 points in the UEFL's Crew Division (1 Previous + 1 Correct Call = 2).

This is the 113th ejection of 2012.
This is the 46th player ejection of 2012.
This is the Diamondbacks' second ejection of 2012, T-2nd in the NL West (LAD 8; SD, SF 3; COL, AZ 2).
This is Justin Upton's first ejection since September 4, 2011 (Brian Knight; QOC = Correct).
This is Alfonso Marquez's first ejection since June 11 (Matt Diaz; QOC = Incorrect).
