White Sox Pierzynski, Ventura ejected
White Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski and manager Robin Ventura have
been ejected from Chicago’s game against the Seattle Mariners.
Pierzynski was thrown out for apparently arguing balls and
strikes with one out in the top of the third inning Saturday night.
When Ventura charged out of the dugout to protest, he also was
ejected and had to be separated from plate umpire Lance Barrett by
third base umpire and crew chief Jim Joyce.
After an exchange of several minutes, Ventura left and Tyler
Flowers took over behind the plate for Pierzynski.
