NEW YORK -- Mariners manager Eric Wedge earned his first ejection of the season on Thursday, when he was tossed by first-base umpire Hunter Wendelstedt after the top of the second inning of his team's 3-2 victory over the Yankees.

Wedge went out to argue after Brendan Ryan laced a line drive to right field that Ichiro Suzuki snared just above the grass for the third out of the second inning.

"That's what I was yelling at," Wedge said. "But I'm not going to talk about that. It was a great game. We've got plenty else to talk about. He should have thrown me out. I would've thrown myself out if I said that to myself."

Wedge already appeared unhappy about a checked-swing, third-strike call on Raul Ibanez for the first out of the inning.

It was the 33rd ejection of Wedge's 10-year managerial career. He also was ejected from a game this spring, the first Cactus League ejection he'd received.
