Angry Ump Runge Apologizes To Manuel

Umpire Brian Runge apologized to Jerry Manuel last night for his behavior during Tuesday night’s game. Apparently, Runge had spoken to his father, former umpire Paul Runge, who is a friend of Manuel’s.

Brian had ejected both Carlos Beltran and Manuel the night before and was completely responsible for escalating the situation. Manuel said Runge apologized to him when he brought the lineup card out prior to Wednesday’s game and he hoped that Runge wouldn’t get suspended for his actions.
