NEW YORK (AP) -Mets catcher Paul Lo Duca was ejected in the ninth inning of New York's game against Philadelphia on Friday night for arguing after he took a called third strike.
Lo Duca immediately started arguing with plate umpire Paul Emmel after the call, and was turning to go to the dugout when he was ejected. Lo Duca wheeled around and went to argue with Emmel again before manager Willie Randolph came out and got in between them.
The game was tied at 2, and Mike DiFelice replaced Lo Duca to start the 10th inning.
