Red Sox Manager Ejected After Replay Dispute
NEW YORK (AP) — Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell has been ejected after arguing a call that was overturned on replay in favor of the New York Yankees.
With runners at the corners and one out in the fourth inning Sunday night, the Red Sox thought they turned an inning-ending double play on Francisco Cervelli’s grounder. First base umpire Bob Davidson called Cervelli out on a bang-bang play, and Cervelli grabbed his right hamstring as he tumbled to the ground.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi challenged the call, which was overturned after a 3-minute replay review. That gave New York another run and a 3-1 lead.
Farrell, surely still bothered by a replay review that curiously went against Boston the day before, pointed to his eyes as he argued with two umpires. He was quickly ejected by Davidson.
Managers aren’t allowed to argue replay rulings.
Cervelli left with an apparent hamstring injury.
