Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa disagreed with the umpires' decision to eject reliever Mike Wright from Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Angels after the right-hander hit Shohei Ohtani with a pitch in the ninth inning.
"They made a mistake," La Russa said, according to James Fegan of The Athletic. "It's upsetting. It looks bad for our pitcher, our team, and me."
The umpires deemed the plunking intentional and tossed Wright.
