Benches Clear During Red Sox-Rays Game, 4 Boston Members Ejected

Tyler Brooke@TylerDBrookeSenior Analyst IIMay 31, 2014

After the two teams got in a scuffle last week, the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays cleared the benches once again on Friday.

UPDATE: Saturday, May 31 at 1:55 p.m. ET

David Ortiz was not happy with Price's pitch, and he had some choice words to say to the Rays pitcher, according to CSNNE.com:

You can’t be acting like a little girl out there. You’re not going to win every time. When you give it up, that’s an experience for the next time. If you’re going act like a little [expletive] when you give it up, bounce back and put your teammates in jeopardy, that’s going to cost you.

He knew he screwed up. He did that on his own. No manager sent him. No player was comfortable with the situation. He did that on his own. Which is (expletive). He can get somebody else hurt. You can’t be doing that (stuff).

It’s on. Next time [Price] better bring the gloves. I have no respect for him no more.

---End of update---

Rays pitcher David Price hit Mike Carp with a pitch in the fourth inning, bringing both teams out of their respective dugouts. Ortiz, who was also hit by a pitch in the first inning of the game, was especially upset and started shouting loudly at Price and in the direction of James Loney.

According to Gordon Edes from ESPNBoston.com, four members of the Red Sox were ejected during the game. Starting pitcher Brandon Workman, third base coach Brian Butterfield, manager John Farrell and bench coach Torey Lovullo were all sent to the showers early.

Despite all of the ejections, Boston still won, 3-2, in 10 innings.
