MiLB Ejection - David Arrieta (Montgomery Meltdown)

Montgomery Biscuits Manager Brady Williams blew a gasket at HP Umpire David Arrieta after the ejection of Biscuits starter Chih-Wei Hu for throwing at an opposing batter in the Double-A Southern League on Monday.

Williams ejected, throws balls & bats on field.
In the top of the sixth inning of the Generals-Biscuits game, Generals batter Steve Baron hit a home run to left center field off Biscuits pitcher Hu. Ensuing Generals batter Kyle Petty then took the first pitch thrown above his head for called ball, resulting in Hu's ejection as HP Umpire Arrieta ruled Hu had intentionally thrown at the head of batter Petty; Williams was automatically ejected as warnings had previously been issued. This was Williams' second consecutive game being ejected, having been tossed the preceding night by Arrieta's crewmate, HP Umpire Joe George. At the time of the ejections, the Generals were leading, 4-2. The Generals ultimately won the contest, 4-3.

Jackson and Montgomery are the Double-A affiliates of the Seattle Mariners and Tampa Bay Rays.
