Gardenhire ejected after Romine's weirdest infield single ever
After the Tigers had already tacked on an insurance run to lead 2-0 in the fourth inning of Sunday's game against the Minnesota Twins, Andrew Romine stepped up with the bases loaded and one out.
His grounder hit baserunner Austin Jackson before the ball — which looked like it would be good for an inning-ending double play — reached Twins shortstop Eduardo Escobar.
Struck by a batted ball, Jackson, by rule is out.
But the inning remained alive.
Twins manager Ron Gardenhire came out to argue that Jackson interfered with a double play, which potentially could hurt the Twins with the inning continuing.
Gardenhire was ejected by third-base umpire Joe West.
One pitch later, Rajai Davis grounded out to third, rendering the whole hoopla moot.
