D.J. Carrasco was ejected for throwing at Ryan Braun in the top of the seventh inning during Tuesday night's Game 2 between the New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers. Carrasco had just given up a home run to Rickie Weeks that extended the Brewers' lead to 8-0. Braun came up to plate next, and Carrasco promptly beaned him.

Carrasco replaced Manny Acosta, who came in after starter Dillon Gee gave up seven earned runs off eight hits through 5 1/3 innings. Carrasco forced Norichika Aoki to fly out before Weeks took him deep to left field. Ramon Ramirez went on the mound after Carrasco was ejected.
