DETROIT (AP) -- Cleveland second baseman Jason Kipnis was ejected from Thursday's game against the Detroit Tigers after striking out in the third inning.
Kipnis struck out swinging with the bases loaded for the third out, then appeared to say something to plate umpire Lance Barrett, who immediately threw him out of the game.
Kipnis also hit into a double play in the first inning. He's batting .212 this season.
Mike Aviles replaced Kipnis at second base in the bottom of the third.

UNDATED (AP) -- Three more Stanley Cup playoff games are being played this evening and in Boston the Bruins, the top seed in the Eastern Conference, start play with a game against Detroit. The Red Wings finished the regular season as the eighth seed in the East. During the regular season the Wings won three of the four games the teams played. The last time these teams met in the playoffs was way back in 1957 when Dwight Eisenhower was president and Elvis Presley was buying Graceland at the age of 22.
The other two games are the second in those series. Montreal took the first game against the Lightning 5-4 in overtime and tonight they play Game 2 in Tampa, while in Anaheim the Ducks look to go up 2-0 against Dallas after winning the opening game 4-3.
