ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox is one ejection shy of matching the career record after he was tossed from Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies.
Cox was ejected for the second straight game and the fifth time this season, leaving him one behind John McGraw's record of 131.
After Kelly Johnson led off the third inning with a double, Willie Harris hit a grounder over first base that landed near the foul line. First base umpire Ron Kulpa immediately called the ball foul, and TV replays supported the ruling.
Cox was thrown out of the game soon after he came on the field to argue the call.
Cox continued to argue for a few minutes before leaving the field to a loud ovation.
Kulpa also ejected John Smoltz as Smoltz yelled at the umpire from the dugout. Smoltz, who got his 200th career win on Thursday night, was not pitching Saturday.
