Collins ejected after arguing overturned call
ATLANTA -- Manager Terry Collins was ejected in the bottom of the fifth inning of the Mets' game against the Braves on Saturday.

With one out and a runner on first base, Jason Heyward hit a shallow fly ball to left field. Jordany Valdespin attempted to make a sliding catch and then threw the ball into the infield, where it was relayed to first base. The umpires initially ruled it was a double play before quickly conferencing.

After a short discussion, the umpires overturned the initial call. Collins came out to argue and was ejected.

Replays showed that the trapped-ball call was correct. The Braves took advantage of the reprieve and scored two runs in the inning to take a two-run lead.
