HP Umpire Bill Hohn ejected Orioles Pitching Coach Rick Kranitz and Orioles Interim Manager Juan Samuel for Unsportsmanlike Conduct-NEC in the top of the 7th inning of the Twins-Orioles game. With one out and one on, Twins catcher Crew Butera hit a 2-1 fastball from Orioles pitcher Kevin Millwood to center field, scoring Twins shortstop J.J. Hardy. Hardy had erroneously been ruled safe by 1B Umpire Gary Darling earlier in the 7th inning on a throw to first base. Replays indicate Kranitz exhibited unsportsmanlike behavior prior to ejection, the call was correct.*^ At the time of the ejections, the Twins were leading, 5-0. The Twins ultimately won the contest, 5-0.
These are Bill Hohn (29)'s second and third ejections of 2010.
