Can someone explain that first time he hit contreras? Is that not a HBP? I know the second one was actually a HBP but did I miss something?

He stuck his elbow out.

he stuck his elbow into it, which makes it a ball instead of an HBP. Umpire's discretion to say the batter tried to get hit on purpose.
