Orioles manager Showalter ejected against Astros

HOUSTON (AP) Baltimore manager Buck Showalter has been ejected in the second inning of game against the Houston Astros.

Showalter was tossed by umpire Brian Gorman after going to home plate in the middle of the inning Thursday and gesturing and yelling at him. His ejection came after Ryan Flaherty struck out after two called strikes, ending Baltimore's half of the second inning.

The Orioles, who had lost five straight, were leading 1-0 at the time of his ejection.
