There was a bit of drama today in the Tigers' game against the Indians when umpire Quinn Wolcott ejected catcher James McCann and then manager Brad Ausmus.

McCann was ejected after arguing with the ump following a close ball/strike call. Wolcott called ball, which allowed Jay Bruce on base due to it resulting in a walk, and McCann told him, according to what he said after the game, "I want the same strike zone that they're getting. I don't care about their win streak, where we are in the standings. We deserve the same pitches called strikes that they're getting called strikes."

Ausmus then came in afterwards and argued the ejection, resulting in him being ejected as well.

Tigers pitcher Buck Farmer continued to stay on the mound, and intentionally walked Carlos Santana at the following at bat. After the walk, however, his very first pitch went past his catcher's mitt and hit the umpire in the shoulder.

Some wondered whether the hit was intentional.

After the game, the Tigers were upset people were saying the pitch was intentional. Ausmus, via MLive, was especially upset.

"I heard the Indians broadcast. To imply that that was intentional is, first of all, a lie. If any player on this team intentionally tried to hurt an umpire, we'd deal with that severely. But for anyone to imply that that was intentional, that's completely wrong...They're out of line saying that, quite frankly."

Farmer, the man who threw the pitch, also responded via his Twitter account.

Considering the circumstances, it would seem like a bad move by Farmer to make that decision. First of all, the bases were loaded so a poorly thrown pitch would likely drive in a run. It's not exactly the easiest thing for a pitcher to precisely hit the umpire in his shoulder with intent.

For what it's worth, Wolcott remained in the game without further incident.
