HP Umpire Chris Guccione ejected Twins Manager Ron Gardenhire for arguing balls and strikes in the top of the 8th inning of the Twins-Orioles game. With one out and none on, Twins batter Jason Kubel took a 0-2 slider from Orioles pitcher Clay Rapada for a called strike three. Replays indicate there was no incorrect callable pitches to Kubel. The call was correct. At the time of the ejection, the Twins were leading, 3-2. The Twins ultimately won the contest, 5-3.
