"[Lentz] was late getting over," Lynn said, "so I left my glove and my hat, and then while I was going down in the dugout, trying to see the trainers because I'm dealing with something, he yells at me that he needs to see my belt."
"So I toss it up and then he throws me out."
Lynn continued, "Obviously, I hurt his feelings ... he threw me out because I tossed my belt, and I said, 'Well, if you were on time, we wouldn't have this problem.'"
For his part, La Russa didn't necessarily disagree with the call ... saying players shouldn't be throwing equipment at umps.
Didn't seem the ejection bothered the Sox too much either way ... they went on to win the game, 3-2.
