Tigers manager Leyland ejected from game in 7th
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland has been ejected from his team's game at Minnesota for arguing with plate umpire Paul Schrieber in the seventh inning.

Magglio Ordonez was called out Wednesday night on strike three, a low-and-outside pitch that Ordonez didn't like. When Schrieber put a hand on his shoulder to usher him away, Ordonez was even more worked up and stopped to complain about being touched.

Then Leyland raced out of the dugout and started screaming in Schrieber's face. Once he was tossed, Leyland stomped around in the dugout and kept yelling for a bit.

Crew chief Joe West came over from second base and stared at the manager with his hands on his hips, until Leyland finally relented and retreated to the clubhouse.
