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.
