TORONTO (AP) -Blue Jays manager John Gibbons was ejected by first base umpire Tim Timmons for arguing a checked swing in the sixth inning of Friday night's game against Seattle.
Gibbons, who had words with plate umpire Chuck Meriwether earlier in the inning, became incensed after Timmons called strikes on both Frank Thomas and Aaron Hill with Toronto trailing 4-2. Both batters stuck out.
After the call on Hill, Timmons wagged his finger toward Toronto's third base dugout, then ejected Gibbons. Gibbons ran onto the field for a heated argument, brushing past Meriwether, who tried to intercept him.
It was the fourth time this season Gibbons has been ejected.
