CLEVELAND – Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price was ejected Saturday afternoon before the game against Cleveland began.
He was thrown out by crew chief Jim Reynolds after the lineup cards were exchanged. The two had a lengthy, heated argument that continued as the Indians players took the field. Reynolds then threw out Price.
The discussion continued before Price finally went to the dugout and returned to the clubhouse. It's unclear what led to the argument, although several Reds players were unhappy with plate umpire Manny Gonzalez's strike zone Friday night.
Cincinnati has lost a season-high six consecutive games.
The ejection was the second of the season for Price and the fourth of his career.
