MLB Ejections P-1|2: Vic Carapazza (P1|2; Cabrera, Williams)

HP Umpire Vic Carapazza ejected Nationals 2B Asdrubal Cabrera and Manager Matt Williams for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 10th inning of the Giants-Nationals game. With none out and none on, Cabrera took three consecutive fastballs on three ball counts from Giants pitcher Jeremy Affeldt for called first, second and third strikes. Replays indicate the 3-0 pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and belt-high (px .643, pz 2.526), the 3-1 pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and midpoint-high (px .549, pz 3.464 / sz_top 3.38 [MOE 3.46]), and the 3-2 pitch was located over the heart of home plate and midpoint-high (px -.014, pz 3.315 / sz_top 3.34 [MOE 3.42]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 1-1. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 2-1, in 18 innings.

These are Vic Carapazza (19)'s first and second ejections of the 2014 MLB Postseason.
