Benches clear after Corbin Carroll is hit by pitch again

by admin

PHOENIX — Tempers boiled over between the D-backs and Phillies in the bottom of the third inning Monday night when Arizona outfielder Corbin Carroll was hit by a pitch for the second straight plate appearance by left-hander Matt Strahm.

Carroll, who was named NL Player of the Week earlier in the day and has been a huge reason the D-backs entered play with the best record in the league, was hit in the left forearm by a pitch in the first inning.

Then in the third, Strahm came inside with a pitch that hit Carroll once again.

While Carroll walked down to first base, D-backs manager Torey Lovullo came out of the dugout to complain to home plate umpire Vic Carapazza.

Lovullo was ejected not long after by Carapazza and while Lovullo was arguing, Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto and Lovullo began arguing.

That prompted both benches and bullpens to empty, though no punches were thrown.

Once the teams returned to the dugout and Christian Walker flied out to right, Carapaza ejected D-backs infielder Josh Rojas, who was not in the lineup and apparently said something from the dugout.

It was the 17th career ejection for Lovullo and the second for Rojas.
