ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Angels starter John Lackey has been ejected after throwing only two pitches in his season debut.

The first pitch thrown by Lackey, activated from the disabled list to start the game, went behind the head of Texas Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler, who homered twice Friday night. The next pitch hit Kinsler in the side of his upper body and home plate umpire Bob Davidson immediately ejected Lackey on Saturday.

Manager Mike Scioscia argued at length with Davidson and crew chief Tim Tschida to no avail. Lackey, who had been sidelined because of a forearm strain, raised his arms on the mound with a look of disbelief on his face.
