 DETROIT (AP) -Detroit manager Jim Leyland and reliever Wil Ledezma were ejected during the fifth inning of the Tigers' game Saturday against the Minnesota Twins.
The problems started with the Twins leading 5-3 with runners on the corners and no one out. Torii Hunter grounded back to Ledezma, who caught Michael Cuddyer off third.
During the ensuing rundown, Cuddyer had to check his stride to avoid a collision with Ledezma, who didn't have the ball at the time. Cuddyer was awarded home plate for interference, a call that Leyland and Ledezma argued.
After Jason Kubel followed with a two-run single to make it 8-3, Ledezma yelled at home plate umpire Paul Nauert and was ejected. That brought Leyland back out of the dugout and he was also tossed during a heated argument.
