SEATTLE (AP) -- Mariners manager Eric Wedge has been ejected for the third time this season, blowing up during the second inning against the Atlanta Braves.

Wedge was tossed by home plate umpire Paul Emmel moments after Jack Cust was called out on strikes on a low pitch. Wedge was in the dugout when he was ejected, but he came out and argued with Emmel for a couple of minutes Wednesday.

The ejection followed Tuesday night's game where Bruce Dreckman's strike zone drew looks from pitchers and batters.

Wedge previously was tossed twice in May, at home against the Chicago White Sox and at Minnesota.
