Both managers, 2 pitchers ejected from Orioles-Sox

Baltimore Orioles reliever Michael Gonzalez and manager Buck

Showalter were both ejected in the bottom of the sixth inning

against the Red Sox after Gonzalez threw a pitch behind Boston’s

David Ortiz.

Ortiz did not charge the mound Sunday the way he did Friday

night, a move which touched off a benches clearing brawl between

the two clubs. Instead, he stood glaring at Gonzalez, who was

immediately ejected by umpire Marty Foster. Foster then pointed at

Showalter in the Orioles dugout and tossed him, too.

Foster also ejected Red Sox starter Kyle Weiland and manager

Terry Francona in the fifth inning. Weiland, who was making his

major league debut, said something after hitting Vladimir Guerrero

and Francona was tossed for coming to his rookie pitcher’s

defense.
