MLB Ejection 153 - Carlos Torres (2; David Bell)

HP Umpire Carlos Torres ejected Reds manager David Bell (strike two call; QOCY) in the top of the 9th inning of the #Reds-#Cubs game. With two out and two on (R1, R2), Reds batter Jose Barrero took a 1-1 curveball from Cubs pitcher Hayden Wesneski for a called second strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the outer edge of home plate and above the hollow of the knee (px 0.81, pz 1.96 [sz_bot 1.63]) and that all other pitches during the at-bat were properly officiated. At the time of the ejection, the Cubs were leading, 9-3. The Cubs ultimately won the contest, 9-3.

This is Carlos Torres (37)'s 2nd ejection of 2022.
