 SAN DIEGO (AP) -Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona was ejected Saturday night after the umpire crew overturned a second call in a span of two innings, this one awarding San Diego's Josh Bard a home run.
Bard's fly ball off Tim Wakefield bounced off the foul pole on the side of the Western Metal Supply Co. brick warehouse, but third base umpire Brian Knight ruled it a foul ball. After Padres manager Bud Black protested, the umpires huddled and the call was changed to a home run, giving the Padres a 5-0 lead.
Francona came out and spoke with crew chief Dana DeMuth, then vented on Knight and got tossed.
In the fifth, left fielder Manny Ramirez dove for Kevin Kouzmanoff's sinking liner, and Knight ruled it a catch. Black argued, the umps huddled and the call was overturned. Kouzmanoff eventually scored on Marcus Giles' double.
It was Francona's second ejection this season.
