Umps calls pitches from behind mound, Pujols at 1B
MILWAUKEE 6, LA ANGELS 1

By JONATHAN DALTON
Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP) -- Something sounded very, very strange to Milwaukee
Brewers starter Wily Peralta.



When he threw pitches to Josh Hamilton in the first inning,
Peralta heard the umpire calling them - from over his left
shoulder.



In a throwback to Little League days, Tim McClelland did some
plate umpiring from behind the mound Tuesday after another ump
was injured in the Brewers' 6-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels.



"When he called `ball' behind me, I just looked behind me,"
Peralta said.



In a game where Angels first baseman Albert Pujols played the
field for the first time since offseason surgery on his right
knee, the big slugger set off an unusual chain of events. With
two outs in the top of the first, he was hit by a pitch from
Peralta. The ball deflected and broke plate umpire Seth
Buckminster's left hand.



Buckminster left the game along with umpire Anthony Johnson, who
changed into home-plate gear. After a few minutes, with
McClelland and Jim Joyce left as the only two umpires left on
the field, play resumed for four batters with McClelland calling
pitches from behind the mound.



"Just keep it moving," McClelland said. "We didn't want people
to sit. Both managers agreed to it, and I knew it wasn't going
to be long. This way we didn't have to sit and could keep the
game going."



Hamilton grounded to end the top of the first. Norichika Aoki
singled to start the bottom half and Rickie Weeks homered deep
to left.



Ryan Braun was two pitches into his at-bat when Johnson emerged
from the right-field corner to applause from the 5,566 at
Maryvale Baseball Stadium.



"It's still baseball," Weeks said. "Guys still have to go out
there and play hard. It's just unfortunate for the umpire who
was out there. Only in spring training."



It was the second day in a row the Brewers watched the plate
umpire leave the game early. On Monday, Cleveland's Mark
Reynolds hit Patrick Mahoney on the head with the follow through
of his swing, causing a 12-minute delay.



"That's what we tried to get them to do the other day and they
wouldn't do it," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said of the
two-man crew. "McClelland isn't worried about it, he just wants
to keep the game moving. You get a great view from back there.
You really do. It's almost better than behind the plate."



Pujols flied out and popped out in six innings.



"I'm too young to DH," Pujols said with a laugh. "I could have
played nine innings, right now but playing nine innings now is
being selfish."



Pujols has thrived in the DH role this spring to the tune of a
.350 average (7 for 20) with two home runs and five RBIs.



"It's different," Pujols said. "I've taught my body to be on the
field all the time and when you have to teach your body
something different it's tough."



Rickie Weeks, Aramis Ramirez and Sean Halton homered for the
Brewers.



Peralta scattered six hits over six innings and allowed one run.
Angels starter Jason Vargas gave up five runs and eight hits in
5 1-3 innings.



NOTES: McClelland said a few years ago he briefly umpired solo
when the plate umpire in a three-man crew was injured. . During
the game, Milwaukee announced C Robinzon Diaz had been returned
to minor league camp. . Brewers RHP Mark Rogers threw a live
bullpen session. He has not pitched in a game since March 12 as
he deals with problems with his command and velocity that
derailed his quest for a spot in Milwaukee's rotation. . Angels
manager Mike Scioscia said he expects RHP Ryan Madson to get
back on the mound within the next couple of days. Madson, who
missed all of last season following Tommy John surgery on April
11, hasn't thrown off a mound since Thursday because of
tightness in his right elbow.
