CHICAGO (AP) — White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen has been ejected in the bottom of the sixth inning after apparently arguing that a ball hit by Alexei Ramirez at the plate was foul.
Ramirez hit a ball close to the plate and Cubs catcher Geovany Soto picked it up and tagged him with home plate umpire James Hoye calling Ramirez out. Ramirez protested and Guillen raced from the dugout, angrily showing Hoye where the ball hit near the plate. After Hoye ejected him Monday night, Guillen kicked Soto’s mask away from the plate and continued his argument.
It was Guillen’s second ejection this season and 27th of his career. The Cubs were leading 6-3 at the time.
