Mariners Season Review: Top 5 Moments In June
By Adam Levi
With so many incredible moments throughout the month it was hard to fit them all. One that can not be forgotten is manager, Scott Servais’s first ejection.
Servais had never been ejected as a manager. But, after Shawn O’Malley was called out for “swinging” at a ball, Servias went right after home plate umpire, Carlos Torres. It wasn’t a Lou Pinella like ejection where the umpire might have to fear that he would be unintentionally spit on and intentionally dusted up, but it was feisty for Servais.
Watching the play, it is very close if O’Malley actually did go around on his check swing. Servias was upset that the call was delayed, but also that Torres did not ask for assistance.

Servais stated after the game that while it was his first ejection, it would not be his last. For a team that has become one of the fighters in the league, their manager is going to become a fighter as well.
