Buehrle, Guillen ejected for arguing balks
White Sox starter Mark Buehrle and manager Ozzie Guillen have
been ejected in Chicago’s series finale against the Cleveland
Indians for arguing two balk calls.
Guillen was tossed in the second inning Wednesday by first-base
umpire Joe West, who moments earlier called the first balk against
Buehrle. The left-hander protested the call and had words with West
before Guillen came out to defend his pitcher.
West then threw out Guillen, who dropped his sunglasses and
lineup card on the track as he left the field.
In the third, Buehrle was called for a second balk by West and
slammed his glove to the ground before he was thrown out. Buehrle
had to be restrained by several teammates and bench coach Joey
Cora. He was replaced by Randy Williams.
