Manuel ejected for second time in 2012
PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies manager Charlie Manuel was ejected for the second time this season in the eighth inning of Tuesday's 4-3 win against the Astros.

With a 1-2 count, Philadelphia starter Cliff Lee threw a curveball that struck out Astros catcher Jason Castro, but the ball bounced past catcher Brian Schneider to the backstop. Castro reached first base safely on the dropped third strike.

Manuel argued with home-plate umpire Bob Davidson and was ejected. The Phils' skipper then walked out of the dugout and onto the field to hold a brief screaming match with Davidson.

The argument appeared to stem from Manuel being upset about Davidson inadvertently interfering with Schneider's path to the ball, though the manager wouldn't discuss it following the game.

"That's between Bob and I," Manuel said. "I don't need to say that."
