Buck Showalter gets first ejection of the year

Orioles manager Buck Showalter was tossed in the top of the sixth Saturday against the Los Angeles Angels after complaining about home plate umpire Angel Campos’ strike zone.

When Campos called a pitch that appeared to be well off the plate a strike against Nick Markakis in the sixth, Showalter yelled something and was immediately ejected.

It was his first of the season and 20th of his career for Showalter. John Russell took over managing duties.

Showalter has been displeased with the strike zones in each of the games during the Angels series. Markakis complained in the fourth on Sunday when he was called out on strikes by Campos.
