After arguing an out call at first base, Cincinnati Reds manager Lou Piniella was ejected by umpire Dutch Rennert. Piniella then pulled first base out of the ground and threw it ... twice, much to the delight of the fans at Riverfront Stadium, who chanted Lou! Lou! as he departed the field. -- Paul Carr, ESPN Stats & Info
