DETROIT (AP) — Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire has been ejected from Saturday’s game at Detroit while arguing a call at second base.

The Twins had men on first and second with nobody out in the third inning when Justin Morneau hit a grounder to first baseman Prince Fielder. He threw to second to start a 3-6-1 double play, which the Tigers turned — but Joe Mauer, who had advanced to third on the play, was sent back to second because of an apparent interference call. Josh Willingham had gone sliding into shortstop Jhonny Peralta at second.

Gardenhire came out to argue and was thrown out of the game by second base umpire Joe West. It was the 64th ejection of Gardenhire’s career and second this season.
