 CHICAGO (AP) - Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera and manager Jim Leyland were both ejected in the top of the first inning of Monday night's game against the Chicago White Sox.
Cabrera began complaining to home plate umpire Brian Gorman that he felt he was struck in the right leg by a pitch from White Sox starter Chris Sale.
After fouling off the next pitch, Cabrera continued complaining and was ejected by Gorman.
Leyland came to his player's aid and was also ejected after less than a minute of arguing with Gorman.
The ejection was Cabrera's second this season and the fifth of his career. Leyland was tossed for the fourth time this season and for the 72nd time of his career.
