Don Mattingly, Juan Uribe tossed from Dodgers game

3 Comments

Don Mattingly was ejected for the first time as Dodgers manager after arguing that Jose Tabata trapped Juan Uribe’s liner to left that turned into a double play in the eighth inning of the game against the Pirates.

Replays confirmed that Tabata did indeed trap the ball.

The score was tied 1-1 when Tabata doubled Matt Kamp off first to end the top of the eighth.  Apparently uninspired by Mattingly’s ejection, the Dodgers have already allowed three runs without getting an out in the bottom of the eighth.
