Kipnis struck out swinging with the bases loaded for the third out, then appeared to say something to plate umpire Lance Barrett, who immediately threw him out of the game.
Analysis: Kipnis also hit into a double play in the first inning. He's batting .212 this season so frustration may be setting in after he signed a big contract. Mike Aviles replaced Kipnis at second base in the bottom of the third.

The All-Star second baseman agreed to a $52.5 million, six-year contract on Friday, binding him to the Indians through the 2019 season. The deal includes a club option for 2020.
Analysis: Kipnis, a native of Northbrook, Ill., signed the contract one day after turning 27, giving him a birthday gift of wealth and security he'll never forget. "It's an amazing feeling to get something done," said Kipnis. "I wanted to stay here. I'm excited about being here."
