Red Sox 3, Twins 1(8)

BY foxsports • May 28, 2009

The Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox both had their managers and catchers ejected during separate arguments in the seventh inning.

Twins catcher Mike Redmond was tossed for disputing a play at the plate. Right fielder Jason Kubel threw a strike to Redmond as Jeff Bailey neared the plate. Replays appeared to show Redmond tag Bailey's arm a split-second before the Boston runner touched home.

Plate umpire Todd Tichenor called safe, Redmond began a face-to-face disagreement and was quickly tossed. Manager Ron Gardenhire was ejected, too. Joe Mauer moved to catcher.

In the bottom of the seventh, catcher Jason Varitek and manager Terry Francona of the Red Sox were kicked out for apparently arguing a pitch that Tichenor called a ball.
