Scioscia receives quick ejection at Texas

ARLINGTON -- Angels manager Mike Scioscia got a relatively quick hook from first-base umpire and crew chief Jerry Layne on Tuesday after coming out to argue a close play at first to start the bottom of the second inning.

Rangers catcher Geovany Soto hit a hard grounder to third base that Alberto Callaspo knocked down, picked up and fired across the diamond. Layne ruled that Soto beat it out, Scioscia jogged from the dugout to protest, and Layne ejected him shortly after arrival.

It was Scioscia's second ejection of the year -- the first was in Kansas City on May 26 -- and the 36th of his 14-year managerial career.

After the Angels' 14-11 walk-off loss in 10 innings, Scioscia said he didn't know why he was ejected so quickly.
