Cardinals 3B coach Oquendo ejected
Cardinals third base coach Jose Oquendo has been ejected for
arguing balls and strikes in the sixth inning.
Oquendo jogged down the line after plate umpire Lance Barnett
called a pitch from the Pirates’ James McDonald that appeared to be
a borderline outside strike for a 2-2 count on Jon Jay on Friday
night. Oquendo kicked dirt on the plate after getting tossed, then
put himself between Barnett and manager Mike Matheny in a game the
Cardinals trailed 2-0.
First base coach Chris Maloney moved to third and bench coach
Mike Aldrete moved to first.
