Tigers' Cabrera, Leyland ejected against Phillies
DETROIT -- Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera was ejected while batting with the bases loaded in the third inning of Sunday's game against Philadelphia after he appeared to say something to home plate umpire Chad Fairchild.
Manager Jim Leyland was also ejected in the ensuing argument.
Cabrera was batting with one out when he took two called strikes. He appeared to say something to Fairchild, although not in a demonstrative fashion. After Cabrera was tossed, Leyland came out of the dugout and was also thrown out. Leyland continued to argue for a while before leaving the field.
