Cust ejected for arguing called third strike

ARLINGTON -- A's slugger Jack Cust was ejected in the top of the seventh inning during Tuesday's game against the Rangers after arguing balls and strikes with home plate umpire Kerwin Danley.

Cust, facing Texas lefty Cliff Lee in a 1-2 count, watched a called third strike pass by him, at which point he exchanged only a couple of words with Danley before being tossed from the 1-1 game.

It marked the third called strikeout of the contest for Cust, who started the game as the designated hitter.
