ST. LOUIS (AP) -Cardinals manager Tony La Russa was ejected for the first time this season on Saturday against the Milwaukee Brewers for arguing balls and strikes.
La Russa was tossed with two outs in the sixth inning by third base umpire Greg Gibson, who ruled that pinch-hitter Skip Schumaker went around on a checked swing.
La Russa yelled comments from the dugout and Gibson quickly ejected the veteran manager. La Russa then slowly walked to the plate and confronted Gibson before being separated by crew chief Charlie Reliford.
Replays appeared to indicate that Schumaker made little movement on the pitch from Manny Parra. He ended up striking out to end the sixth.
The Brewers were leading in the first game of a day-night doubleheader, 6-2.
