MLB Ejections 124-125: Carapazza (1-2; Cervelli, Hurdle)

HP Umpire Vic Carapazza ejected Pirates C Francisco Cervelli and Manager Clint Hurdle for arguing a foul ball call in the top of the 2nd inning of the Cardinals-Pirates game. With two out and none on, Cardinals batter Mark Reynolds attempted to strike a 1-2 knuckle curve from Pirates pitcher A.J. Burnett for a called foul ball, prior to hitting a home run on the succeeding pitch. Replays indicate that Reynolds' bat did not appear to contact the baseball during his swing, the call was incorrect. At the time of the ejection, the Cardinals were leading, 1-0. The Pirates ultimately won the contest, 6-5, in 14 innings.

These are Vic Carapazza (19)'s first and second ejections of 2015.
Vic Carapazza now has -4 points in the UEFL Standings (0 Previous + 2*[2 MLB - 4 Incorrect] = -4).
