Blue Jays manager John Gibbons ejected after disputed walk
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Toronto manager John Gibbons has been ejected for arguing with home plate umpire Ramon De Jesus during the third inning of the Blue Jays' game at Angel Stadium.
Gibbons was angered Sunday when Kole Calhoun apparently attempted to call timeout right before a pitch from Marcus Stroman. De Jesus moved, but didn't call time until Stroman's pitch already had been delivered for ball four.
Gibbons argued the pitch shouldn't have counted, but De Jesus allowed Calhoun to take first base after consulting with his fellow umpires.
Gibbons was ejected for the first time this season and the 41st time in his career.
Stroman also was furious. He immediately gave up back-to-back singles to Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, who drove in Calhoun for a 1-0 Angels lead.
