Cardinals third base coach Jose Oquendo has been ejected for arguing balls and strikes in the sixth inning. Oquendo jogged down the line after plate umpire Lance Barnett called a pitch from the Pirates' James McDonald that appeared to be a borderline outside strike for a 2-2 count on Jon Jay on Friday night. Oquendo kicked dirt on the plate after getting tossed, then put himself between Barnett and manager Mike Matheny in a game the Cardinals trailed 2-0. First base coach Chris Maloney moved to third and bench coach Mike Aldrete moved to first.
