Astros manager, pitching coach ejected

Both Houston Astros manager Brad Mills and pitching coach Brad

Arnsberg have been ejected in the second inning of Friday night’s

game with the Milwaukee Brewers.

Astros pitcher Nelson Figueroa walked the first two batters in

the inning and Arnsberg came to the mound to settle his


Plate umpire Paul Schrieber went out to break up the meeting. As

Arnsberg walked back toward the dugout, Schrieber ejected him and

Arnsberg got into the umpire’s face, pointing at him with his left

index finger.

Crew chief and second-base umpire Joe West came to split up the

pair and Mills came out as well. As Arnsberg left, West approached

Mills and ejected him, though the conversation lasted a couple more

minutes and wasn’t overly animated.
