ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington was ejected from Monday night’s game after disputing a ruling overturned by replay that gave the Seattle Mariners a run.

The Mariners had the bases loaded in the sixth when Brad Miller hit a comebacker to pitcher Pedro Figueroa, who threw home. Umpire Paul Schrieber initially ruled an out at the plate, even though catcher J.P. Arencibia bobbled the ball on a transfer without dropping it or making a throw.

Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon challenged the call. After a review that took 3 minutes, 31 seconds, the umpires reversed their ruling, erasing the out and giving Seattle a run.

Washington immediately came out to argue and was ejected by crew chief Ted Barrett after getting to the plate.

On Sunday night, Boston manager John Farrell became the first manager to be ejected for arguing a replay decision. Managers aren’t allowed to dispute replay rulings.
