NEW YORK -- Among other oddities, Thursday night's Mets game against the Brewers included a three-minute rain delay and an ejection of typically cheerful catcher Anthony Recker.

Recker began jawing with Angel Hernandez after the home-plate umpire called him out on strikes with the bases loaded and two outs in the 11th. Quickly, Hernandez ejected Recker, who then began screaming at the umpire.

Manager Terry Collins emerged from the dugout to restore order, and the Mets replaced Recker in the lineup with Taylor Teagarden -- their last available bench player.
