CHICAGO (AP) -White Sox designated hitter Jim Thome was ejected in the fifth inning of Friday night's game against the Detroit Tigers after angrily protesting a third strike call by plate umpire James Hoye.
Thome was called out on a 3-2 pitch that replays showed was borderline low. Thome started to head toward first thinking he had walked when he was called out, then turned and began arguing with Hoye.
Manager Ozzie Guillen came out to separate Thome from Hoye. It was just the third career ejection for Thome, who is in his 18th season. His last ejection came on June 1, 2005, also for arguing balls and strikes.
