HP Umpire Angel Hernandez ejected Padres Manager Bud Black for arguing a called second ball in the top of the 4th inning of the Reds-Padres game. With two out and three on, Reds batter Travis Wood took a 1-2 curveball from Padres pitcher Tim Stauffer for a called second ball. Replays indicate the pitch was located navel high and over the inner half of home plate. The subsequent pitch was correctly called strike three, resulting in the end of the inning. Black was ejected immediately following the strike three call, creating a post-at bat, post-inning ejection. Quality of Correctness for this ejection is correct under Rule 6.e.iii.d.* This ejection is Eligible for a Balls/Strikes exemption.** The call is correct.*** At the time of the ejection, the Reds were leading, 1-0. The Padres ultimately won the contest, 3-2.

This is Angel Hernandez (55)'s first ejection of 2011.
