Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus has been suspended for one game, MLB announced Tuesday. Ausmus will miss Tuesday’s game against the Minnesota Twins.

The suspensions stems from Ausmus’s actions during the Tigers’ loss to the Twins on Monday. In the bottom of the fourth inning, Ausmus was ejected from the game for arguing balls and strikes.

Instead of immediately leaving the field, Ausmus took off his sweatshirt and used it to cover home plate before tossing his hat as he exited the field.
