Elvis ejected in the sixth inning after groundout

MINNEAPOLIS -- Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus was ejected from Wednesday's game against the Twins for saying something to home-plate umpire Pat Hoberg.

Andrus was ejected after an at-bat with one out in the sixth inning. Andrus thought a 3-1 pitch was ball four, but Hoberg called it a strike. Andrus ended up grounding out to shortstop.

As he ran back to the third-base dugout, Andrus said something without looking at Hoberg. That's when the umpire ejected him. It's the second time this season Andrus has been ejected from a game.
