MLB Ejections 062-063: Todd Tichenor (1-2; Napoli, Farrell)

HP Umpire Todd Tichenor ejected Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli and Manager John Farrell for arguing a strike three call in the top of the 8th inning of the Red Sox-Rangers game. With two out and none on, Napoli took a 2-2 fastball from Rangers pitcher Ross Ohlendorf for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer half of home plate and thigh-high (px .408, pz 1.757 [sz_bot 1.44]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejections, the Rangers were leading, 5-4. The Rangers ultimately won the contest, 7-4.

These are Todd Tichenor (13)'s first and second ejections of 2015.
Todd Tichenor now has 7 points in the UEFL Standings (-1 Previous + 2*[2 MLB + 2 Correct] = 7).
Crew Chief Tim Welke now has 6 points in Crew Division (4 Previous + 2 Correct Calls = 6).

These are the 62nd and 63rd ejections of the 2015 MLB Regular Season.
This is the 27th Manager ejection of 2015.
This is the 30th player ejection of 2015. Prior to ejection, Napoli was 0-2 (2 SO) in the contest.
This is the Red Sox' 2/3rd ejection of 2015, T-1st in the AL East (BAL, BOS 3; TB 2; NYY 1; TOR 0).
This is Mike Napoli's first ejection since August 10, 2014 (CB Bucknor; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
This is John Farrell's first ejection since August 17, 2014 (Doug Eddings; QOC = Y [Replay Review]).
This is Todd Tichenor's first ejection since June 5, 2014 (Rick Renteria; QOC = Y [Balls/Strikes]).
