Francona And Cameron Tossed At Toronto

TORONTO (AP) – Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona and

outfielder Mike Cameron have been ejected for arguing with plate

umpire Jeff Kellogg in the seventh inning against Toronto.

Cameron was tossed Saturday for arguing from the dugout after he

struck out looking against Blue Jays right-hander Jason Frasor for

the second out of the inning.

Cameron and Francona came out of the dugout to confront Kellogg,

with Francona sending Cameron back to the bench before resuming the

argument.

Francona waved his hand in Kellogg's face after being ejected

and was walled off by third base umpire Larry Vanover and first

base ump Jeff Nelson, jabbing his finger in Kellogg's direction

before leaving the field.

It was Francona's second ejection this season and the 28th of

his managerial career. Cameron's ejection was his first of the

year.
