Ron Washington ejected in sixth

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Rangers manager Ron Washington was ejected by home plate umpire Andy Fletcher in the top of the sixth.

Pitching coach Maddux had come out to talk to Derek Holland, who gave up a leadoff double to Daniel Murphy. Washington followed shortly after and was given the heave-ho by Fletcher.

It's the second ejection of the season for Washington, who was no doubt still fuming over several calls that didn't go the Rangers' way early in the game.

It was intially announced that Maddux was also ejected, but that was later corrected.

The Rangers were down 5-3 at the time of Washington's ejection. New York added two more runs to go up 7-3 going into the bottom of the sixth.

EDIT: Elvis Andrus, out with a sprained wrist, was actually ejected while on the bench by Fletcher before Washington was tossed.
