HP Umpire Left White Sox-Mariners Game
CHICAGO (AP) -- Home plate umpire Brian Runge has left the Seattle Mariners-Chicago White Sox game.

Before the top of the third, the umpires huddled with a White Sox trainer before Runge and second-base umpire Hunter Wendelstedt left the field through a tunnel behind the plate. About 10 minutes later, Wendelstedt returned wearing a chest protector and took over behind the plate.

It was unclear exactly what caused Runge to leave Wednesday night's game. He took a foul tip off his mask in the bottom of the first.
