Toronto’s Escobar, Gaston ejected

Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Yunel Escobar and manager Cito
Gaston were ejected in Monday’s game against the New York
Yankees.

Escobar was ejected by plate umpire Jerry Meals after taking the
field in the top of the sixth, moments after flying out to left to
end the fifth. He was standing behind the mound when Meals threw
him out.

Gaston came out of the dugout and argued with both Meals and
crew chief Dale Scott, the third base umpire, before he was ejected
for the second time this season.

John McDonald replaced Escobar at shortstop.
