MLB Ejection 075: Mark Ripperger (1; Chip Hale)

HP Umpire Mark Ripperger ejected Diamondbacks Manager Chip Hale for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 6th inning of the Mets-Diamondbacks game. With two out and none on, Diamondbacks batter Paul Goldschmidt took a 3-2 fastball from Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the inner edge of home plate and thigh-high (px 1.083, pz 2.476), the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Mets were leading, 1-0. The Diamondbacks ultimately won the contest, 2-1.
