Yankees C Russell Martin ejected in fifth inning



Yankees catcher Russell Martin was ejected by home plate umpire Paul Schrieber in the bottom of the fifth for apparently arguing balls and strikes.

Ben Zobrist had just walked on four pitches and Johnny Damon was coming to the plate when Martin, still in his crouch position, must have shared words with Schrieber. Schrieber walked around to the front of Martin and then tossed him from the game. Yankees manager Joe Girardi came out to argue as well.

C Austin Romine came in to replace Martin behind the plate.
