SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle catcher Tom Murphy and manager Scott Servais were both ejected by plate umpire Brian Walsh in the sixth inning of Tuesday's game against the New York Yankees.

Murphy was ejected after yelling toward first base umpire C.B. Bucknor following a check-swing that was called a strike. Walsh, calling balls and strikes for only the second time in his career in the majors, quickly tossed Murphy, although it wasn't immediately realized.

Servais then came out to argue the decision to eject Murphy and was quickly tossed by Walsh. It was the second ejection this season for Servais.

Cal Raleigh replaced Murphy and inherited a 1-2 count. He eventually doubled thanks to a miscommunication in right-center field between Aaron Judge and Greg Allen.


Walsh made his major league debut on April 18 and worked the plate for the first time at Kansas City on May 24.
