On his way back to the bench, Donaldson engaged in a short discussion with home-plate umpire Toby Basner and was tossed out of the game. It was Donaldson's second ejection of the season.
"As I was jogging back, something was said to me from the Twins' side of the dugout about how I was running to first base," Donaldson said. "I decided to respond and the next thing I knew, I was getting ejected."
Ryan Goins replaced Donaldson in the order and was inserted at second base. Darwin Barney, who started the game at second, took Donaldson's place at third.
