Cole Hamels Ejected for Arguing with Umpire

By  | 

TORONTO (AP) - Phillies left-hander Cole Hamels was ejected from
Friday's game against the Blue Jays for arguing balls and strikes with plate umpire Mark Carlson.

The ejection came after Hamels was removed for right-hander Chan
Ho Park with two outs in the fifth and the Phillies trailing 4-0. With manager Charlie Manuel and the rest of the Phillies infield at the mound, Carlson walked out to break up the conference and Manuel signaled to the bullpen.

Hamels, winless in his last four starts, began arguing with Carlson as he walked alone to the dugout and was ejected just after crossing the foul line. He's the first Philadelphia player to be ejected this season.
