    Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto has been ejected for arguing a called third strike in the first inning Wednesday against the Atlanta Braves.

     

    It is the eighth career ejection for Votto Derrius Guice Color Rush Jersey , a five-time All-Star and the 2010 NL MVP.

    Brandon Dixon took his place in the field.

    Votto was thrown out after taking a high strike from Sean Newcomb. After home plate umpire Carlos Torres called him out, Votto stepped from the batter’s box, walked in front of the plate and turned to disagree.

    As Votto kept talking Justin Bethel Color Rush Jersey , Torres held up his hand three different times before issuing the ejection. Third base coach Billy Hatcher came over to restrain Votto as interim manager Jim Riggleman came out of the dugout to speak with Torres.

    Votto leads the NL in on-base percentage and walks. His 265 career homers rank fifth on the Reds’ career list.

    The Mariners placed starting catcher Mike Zunino on the 10-day disabled list Thursday due to a bruised left ankle.

    Manager Scott Servais said Zunino rolled his ankle running the bases late in Seattle’s 7-4 loss Wednesday to the Los Angeles Angels.

    Zunino was immediately sent in for X-rays on Thursday, and had his foot immobilized in a boot in the clubhouse before the series finale.

    ”It’s not good news,” Servais said.

    Chris Herrmann takes over as the starting catcher Logan Paulsen Color Rush Jersey , and David Freitas was recalled from Triple-A Tacoma to serve as the backup.

    Zunino is batting .189 with 12 home runs and 29 RBIs this season. He is just 2 for 13 during the Mariners’ current homestand, but came on as a pinch hitter Wednesday, and got a hit and walked.

    Zunino spent three weeks on the DL earlier in the season with a strained left oblique.
