Acta ejected from game
Nationals manager Manny Acta was ejected from Friday’s game against the Marlins after three innings.
After Elijah Dukes struck out looking to end the third inning, Acta was seen arguing with home plate umpire Tim Timmons. Within a few seconds, Timmons ejected Acta. Bench coach Jim Riggleman took over the managerial duties.
It was Acta’s second ejection of his career, the first coming on July 26, 2007. In that game, Acta and left-hander John Lannan exited the game after Lannan hit Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard with a pitch.
