MLB Ejection S-3 - Alfonso Marquez (1; Carl Edwards Jr)

HP Umpire Alfonso Marquez ejected Cubs pitcher Carl Edwards, Jr. (throwing at Mariners batter Austin Nola; QOCU) in the top of the 6th inning of the Mariners-Cubs game. With one out and none on, Mariners batter Kyle Lewis hit a 0-1 pitch from Edwards for a home run. Following a Tim Lopes fly out, subsequent Mariners batter Nola took a 0-0 pitch from Edwards for a hit-by-pitch, the third hit batsman of the game. Video replays are unavailable, the game was not televised, though it was broadcast on radio, the call was irrecusable.* At the time of the ejection, the Cubs were leading, 5-3. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 6-4.

This is Alfonso Marquez (72)'s first ejection of 2019 Spring Training.
*Commentary Critique: How does one mispronounce Fonzie's name? See attached audio clip.
