ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Left-hander Eddie Guardado has been ejected from the Texas Rangers' game against the Oakland Athletics.
Guardado entered Thursday's game with the bases loaded in the seventh inning. He threw four balls to the only batter he faced and was lifted by manager Ron Washington.
As Guardado was walking off the mound, he had words with umpire Angel Campos, who remained near the plate.
Campos then ejected Guardado, who slung his glove and cap toward the stands near the Rangers dugout. The veteran pitcher then raised both arms over his head to incite the fans, who responded with cheers as he stomped into the dugout.
