Ron Gardenhire tossed in 7th inning
MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was ejected in the seventh inning of Game 2 against the Yankees for arguing balls and strikes.
Carl Pavano appeared to have Yankees designated hitter Lance Berkman struck out, but home plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt called the pitch a ball. Berkman hit a double on the next pitch that put the Yankees ahead 3-2.
Gardenhire came out to visit Pavano on the mound and lingered, prompting Wendelstedt to come out and hurry things along. Gardenhire barked at Wendelstedt on his way back to the dugout and was quickly ejected.
