Home plate umpire Sam Holbrook has ejected another Baltimore Oriole.
Orioles center fielder Adam Jones was tossed from Wednesday night’s game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park after saying something NSFW following a strikeout in the top of the fifth inning. He clearly was upset with Holbrook’s strike zone.
Orioles right-handed starter Kevin Gausman also was ejected after he hit Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts with a curveball that clocked in at 76.6 mph. His ejection came despite no pregame warnings following a talk between Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred and the two teams earlier Wednesday.
