PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Washington's John Lannan was thrown out in his major league debut after hitting Philadelphia's Chase Utley and Ryan Howard in consecutive at-bats in the fifth inning Thursday.
Washington manager Manny Acta also was ejected by plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt after Lannan's exit. It was Acta's first ejection.
Lannan allowed three runs and six hits in the first four innings. After getting the first out of the fifth, Lannan hit Utley on the right hand. Howard followed and was hit on the right shoulder. Although there were no warnings given, Wendelstedt immediately ejected Lannan.
Lannan was replaced by Chris Schroder. Lannan was called up by Washington after he went a combined 12-3 with a 2.35 ERA in 20 games with three minor league teams this season.
