Boston, Tampa Bay get into another brouhaha

In heated game, four Red Sox ejected, including three managers

BOSTON — The Rays and Red Sox are at it again.

Both benches cleared Friday night at Fenway Park during the latest scuffle between the teams in another testy game that featured four Boston ejections — including three managers.

“When we have four people ejected and also have three people hit by pitches, and they have none, that’s a hard one to figure out,” said Boston manager John Farrell, who was the first of three Boston skippers to get tossed.

His two successors joined him later along with starting pitcher Brandon Workman, who was tossed in the sixth after a throwing a high pitch that sailed behind Tampa Bay slugger Evan Longoria.

Farrell was still irked after the game that Tampa Bay ace David Price was not ejected.

Farrell objected after Price’s first pitch to David Ortiz hit him in the hip, setting the tone for the night. Plate umpire Dan Bellino immediately issued a warning to both benches, which irked Farrell enough to get him out of the dugout, then quickly ejected when he crossed Bellino’s threshold.

“There is intent to that pitch. As emphatic as Dan Bellino’s warning was, it sure seemed like Dan Bellino felt like there was intent as well,” Farrell said.

Notes

• San Francisco pitcher Matt Cain was placed on the 15-day DL with a strained right hamstring, one day ahead of his scheduled start against the St. Louis Cardinals.

• Miami right-hander Henderson Alvarez has been cleared to pitch Tuesday after complaining of a sore elbow in his most recent start. The severity of right-hander Carter Capps’ elbow injury is still unclear.
