MLB Ejections 104|105 - Quinn Wolcott (1|2; Bochy, Hale)

HP Umpire Quinn Wolcott ejected Giants Manager Bruce Bochy for arguing warnings/ejection no-call in the bottom of the 2nd and Diamondbacks Manager Chip Hale for arguing a ball three call in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Diamondbacks-Giants game. In the 2nd, with none out and none on, Giants batter Buster Posey took multiple pitches inside, culminating in a 2-0 fastball from Diamondbacks pitcher Patrick Corbin for a called third ball. Replays indicate the 1-0 pitch was located thigh high and 22.8 inches inside (px -2.736, pz 2.493) while the 2-0 pitch was located elbow high and thrown behind Posey and 32.2 inches inside (px -3.514, pz 3.514), resulting in warnings; Giants pitcher Jeff Samardzija previously hit D-Backs batter Jean Segura, the call was irrecusable. In the 5th, with two out and the bases loaded, Giants batter Grant Green took a 3-2 fastball from Corbin for a called third ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the inner half of home plate and below the hollow of the knee (px .285, pz 1.697 [sz_bot 1.650 / MOE 1.733]), the call was correct. At the time of Bochy's ejection, the Diamondbacks were leading, 2-0. At the time of Hale's ejection, the Giants were leading, 5-2. The Giants ultimately won the contest, 6-2.
