CLEVELAND (AP) -Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland and pitcher Justin Verlander were ejected from Saturday night's game against the Cleveland Indians in the bottom of the fourth inning.
The Tigers were apparently unhappy that a pitch thrown by Chad Durbin to Travis Hafner was called a ball. After Hafner struck out, Leyland raced onto the field to argue with home plate umpire Tony Randazzo and was quickly ejected. While that was going on, second-base umpire Greg Gibson ejected Verlander, who was yelling from the dugout.
Leyland stayed on the field for several minutes after he was ejected and argued with all four umpires. After going back to the dugout, he returned to the field and continued the argument before finally leaving for good.
It was Leyland's second ejection of the season.
Gibson ejected Tigers DH Gary Sheffield from Thursday night's game. Gibson said Sheffield threw a bat handle in his direction after grounding out. Sheffield had argued a strike call in the at-bat. He was suspended three games on Friday by the commissioner's office. Sheffield has appealed the suspension.
