MLB Ejections 169-170 - Carapazza, Wendelstedt (CHC)

HP Umpire Vic Carapazza ejected Cubs PH Ian Happ (strike three call; QOCN) and 2B Umpire Hunter Wendelstedt ejected bench player Willson Contreras (USC-NEC) in the bottom of the 4th inning of the #Nationals-#Cubs game. With two out and the bases loaded, Happ took a 3-2 sinker from Nationals pitcher Joe Ross for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located off the outer edge of home plate and belt-high (px -1.08, pz 2.93 [sz_top 3.64]), the call was incorrect. Due to his status on the injured list, Contreras' call was irrecusable.^ At the time of the ejections, the Nationals were leading, 5-1. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 7-2.
