LSU skipper Jay Johnson puzzled by 4th inning ejection weirdness

Umpires threw out a “guy in a gray shirt,” during the fourth inning of No. 1 LSU‘s 8-6 loss to Auburn on Saturday. The entire LSU team was wearing their grey uniforms during the matchup, leading to some confusion on the diamond.

The officials’ vaugeness caused LSU to send the wrong coach, video coordinator Jamie Tutko, to the back. They later found it it was assistant coach Josh Jordan. Jordan left the game and Tutko returned to the dugout.

After some discussion, it was revealed that umpires were reacting to an argued balk call on Tigers RHP Ty Floyd. Earlier in the game, the LSU coaching staff argued a similar instance for Auburn that was not called a balk and led to the frustration.

LSU head coach Jay Johnson said after the game that he does not know why Jordan was ejected, as he did not see or hear anything from his assistant to warrant an ejection. Jordan’s removal caused LSU to be without a first-base coach for the final five innings of the game.

Before the fourth inning, where the drama started, LSU led 2-0. Auburns bats would get hot — and stay hot — en route to knocking off the nation’s top-ranked team and split the weekend series before Sunday’s rubber match.

First pitch between Auburn and LSU on Sunday is set for 2 p.m. ET live on SECN+.
