Ejection Junction, What’s Your Function?

Jarrod Saltalamacchia took Adam Jones head on in the bottom of the sixth and held onto the ball. The catcher is “a heavy human,” tweeted Jones after the encounter. The effort proved to be in vain when the next batter, Mark Reynolds, skimmed the ball along the left field wall and drove in two runs.

In the eighth inning home plate umpire Mike Everitt tossed Adrian Gonzalez out of the game after the first baseman chirped one too many times about being quick pitched by Pedro Strop. Bobby Valentine emerged from the bullpen to argue the ejection and Everitt dismissed the field manager as well. Valentine didn’t try to sneak back into the dugout in a disguise. Perhaps he followed his slugger to make sure he didn’t send another text to John Henry.
