Washington, Pettis ejected in seventh
It didn't take long for Hernandez to eject Pettis. That only made Pettis argue more and forced manager Ron Washington out of the dugout himself.
"I must have said something I shouldn’t have, and I guess Gary did too," Washington said. "I was out there to see what went on with Gary and he said something to me and I said something to him, and next thing I know I was gone, too."
The play gave the Marlins two outs and eliminated a runner in a 2-1 game at that point.
"Angel is just bad," Washington said. "That's all there is to it."
It was the second ejection of the season for both Pettis and Washington. Pettis was tossed on April 17, and Washington was ejected June 26 against the Mets. The ejections left hitting coach Scott Coolbaugh to coach first and Jackie Moore to handle the managing duties.
It meant that 80-year-old Jack McKeon was managing the Marlins against 72-year-old Moore.
