Brewers' Greinke, Roenicke ejected against Astros

Houston (AP) - Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke and starting pitcher Zack Greinke have been ejected in the first inning against the Houston Astros.

Greinke raced to cover first base on a grounder by Jose Altuve and spiked the ball when the All-Star speedster was called safe, leading to his ejection by first base umpire Sam Holbrook.

Roenicke immediately raced out to argue the call and was ejected for the first time this season.

Greinke was replaced by Livan Hernandez.

Jordan Schafer scored on the play to put Houston up 1-0 on Saturday.
