MLB Ejections 094-096 - Carapazza (3-5; TOR x3)

HP Umpire Vic Carapazza ejected Blue Jays DH Edwin Encarnacion and Manager John Gibbons for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 1st and Blue Jays C Russell Martin for arguing a strike two call in the bottom of the 13th inning of the Indians-Blue Jays game. In the 1st, with two out and none on, Encarnacion took a 3-2 cutter from Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and thigh high (px 1.029, pz 2.283), the call was incorrect. In the 13th, with two out and one on, Martin took a 1-1 curveball from Indians pitcher Tommy Hunter for a called second strike before subsequently striking out swinging. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and belt high (px .803, pz 3.037), the call was correct. At the time of the Encarnacion and Gibbons ejections, the game was tied, 0-0. At the time of Martin's ejection, the game was tied, 1-1. The Indians ultimately won the contest, 2-1, in 19 innings.
