GAR­DEN­HIRE TOSSED IN OPENER

Regina Leader-Post - - SPORTS -

Ron Gar­den­hire didn’t make it to the fi­nal out in his first game as man­ager of the Detroit Tigers.

Gar­den­hire was ejected Fri­day at Detroit’s Comer­ica Park after a re­play re­view over­turned what would have been the winning run in the 10th in­ning.

Ni­cholas Castel­lanos was ini­tially called safe at home on a sin­gle by Ja­Coby Jones and the Tigers spilled onto the field to cel­e­brate. The play was re­viewed, how­ever, with the Detroit play­ers still on the field. After Castel­lanos was called out to end the in­ning, Gar­den­hire ar­gued un­til he was tossed for the 74th time in his ca­reer.

The Pi­rates later scored three runs in the top of the 13th in­ning on a homer by Gre­gory Polanco to take a 13-10 vic­tory.

Gar­den­hire, who man­aged the Min­nesota Twins through 2014, was hired by Detroit to re­place Brad Aus­mus.
