Nationals Manager Riggleman Ejected In 1st Inning

BALTIMORE (AP) — Nationals manager Jim Riggleman has been ejected in the first inning of Washington’s game against the Baltimore Orioles for arguing a call with home plate umpire Todd Tichenor.

Tichenor ruled that Nationals’ leadoff batter Roger Bernadina was out of the batter’s box when his bat made contact with the ball on a bunt Sunday.

Bernadina beat out the bunt but was ruled out. Riggleman was ejected after a brief argument. It was Riggleman’s second ejection of the season.
