 WASHINGTON (AP) -St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa was ejected in the fifth inning of Sunday's game against the Washington Nationals for arguing a third strike call.
La Russa was thrown out by first base umpire Mark Wegner when Wegner ruled Cardinals' left fielder Ryan Ludwick had struck out on a checked swing.
In the bottom of the fourth inning, La Russa had argued with Wegner when the umpire called Ryan Zimmerman safe on a slow ground ball to short.
It was La Russa's second ejection of the season.
One batter after La Russa was tossed, Jim Edmonds doubled in Albert Pujols to tie the game at 3.
