MLB Ejections 081-83 - Carapazza, Hernandez (TEX-BOS)

1B Umpire Vic Carapazza ejected Red Sox CF Andrew Benintendi and Manager Alex Cora (strike one call by crewmate; QOCY) in the bottom of the 5th and HP Umpire Angel Hernandez ejected Rangers Manager Chris Woodward (out call by 2B Umpire Jordan Baker; QOCY) in the top of the 6th inning of the Rangers-Red Sox game. In the 5th, with one out and none on, Benintendi took a 0-0 fastball from Rangers pitcher Ariel Jurado for a called first strike before grounding out on the next pitch. Replays indicate the 0-0 pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and waist-high (px -0.84, pz 2.55), the call was correct.* At the time of Benintendi and Cora's ejections, the Rangers were leading, 6-3.

In the 6th, with one out and none on, Rangers batter Asdrubal Cabrera hit a 0-2 fastball from Red Sox pitcher Bobby Poyner on a line drive to left fielder Sam Travis, who threw to second baseman Marco Hernandez as Cabrera slid into second base. Replays indicate Hernandez tagged Cabrera while Cabrera was off his base and Woodward took 43 seconds before deciding whether or not to challenge the play (30 seconds as per the countdown clock + 13 additional seconds prior to his conversation with Hernandez, which lasted another 22 seconds prior to ejection, see attached video in comments), in excess of the 30-second time limit under which a manager may consider whether to challenge, the call was correct. At the time of Woodward's ejection, the Rangers were leading, 9-3. The Rangers ultimately won the contest, 9-5.

This is Angel Hernandez (5)'s first ejection of the 2019 MLB regular season.
