SEATTLE -- Mariners shortstop Brad Miller was ejected from Saturday's game against the A's by home-plate umpire Bob Davidson after striking out in the fourth inning.
Miller appeared to say something to Davidson as he stood at the plate after the called third strike, then was tossed as he walked back to the dugout.
"He said something to the umpire, and the umpire didn't like it," said Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon.
Veteran utility infielder Willie Bloomquist replaced Miller in the fifth inning.
