CINCINNATI (AP) St. Louis Cardinals pitcher John Lackey has been ejected from his start against the Cincinnati Reds in the third inning.

Lackey appeared to question several ball-strike calls by plate umpire Tom Hallion before a 2-1 pitch to Brayan Pena was called a ball with the score 2-all on Wednesday night.

The right-hander apparently questioned that call, and Hallion - the crew chief - ejected him.

Lackey allowed four hits and two runs with two walks and one strikeout. Left-hander Tyler Lyons replaced him.
