 TORONTO (AP) -Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen was ejected in the third inning of Sunday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
It's Guillen's first ejection of the season and the 10th of his career.
Guillen was ejected by home plate umpire Alfonso Marquez after Toronto's Lyle Overbay was granted first base after being hit on the left wrist by a pitch from Chicago left-hander John Danks.
Guillen argued with Marquez and then with third-base umpire Chuck Meriwether that Overbay was swinging at the pitch and should not be given first base.
Guillen was ejected as he continued yelling at Marquez on his way back to the dugout.
Chicago led Toronto 3-0 at the time of the ejection on a two-run home run by Jim Thome and a solo homer by Rob Mackowiak.
Overbay stayed in the game to run but was replaced at first base by Matt Stairs in the top of the fourth inning.
