MLB Ejection 022 - Vic Carapazza (1; Dexter Fowler)

HP Umpire Vic Carapazza ejected Cubs CF Dexter Fowler for arguing strike calls in the bottom of the 3rd inning of the Nationals-Cubs game. With two out and none on, Fowler took two consecutive 0-1 sinkers from Nationals pitcher Joe Ross for called second and third strikes. Replays indicate the 0-1 pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and thigh high (px .447, pz 2.621) and the 0-2 pitch was located over the heart of home plate and below the midpoint (px .170, pz 3.577 [sz_bot 3.648]), the call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 0-0.
