Braves' Cox ejected for 158th time

BY foxsports • September 17, 2010

Atlanta manager Bobby Cox has been ejected for taking exception with umpire Bill Hohn's strike zone in the second inning of the Braves game against the New York Mets.

Cox was displeased with Hohn's call on ball four to Ike Davis and was tossed by the umpire immediately as he came out of the dugout.

It was his fifth ejection of the year and extended his own major league record with the 158th of his career.

Retiring at the end of the season, Cox lasted just two batters into the second inning of the first game of his final road trip to Citi Field. After David Wright flied out to right field, Tommy Hanson walked Davis.

Cox argued with Hohn, then Hohn stepped back and Cox walked up the line and briefly spoke with first base umpire Gary Darling.
