NEW YORK (AP) -Red Sox manager Terry Francona was ejected in the seventh inning of Thursday's game against the New York Yankees for arguing with the umpires after they called Boston's Kevin Youkilis out for running outside the basepath.
Youkilis was originally ruled safe when he eluded Alex Rodriguez's attempt to tag him on J.D. Drew's grounder to third. Yankees manager Joe Torre then came out and argued that Youkilis ran out of the basepath when he went to the infield grass to get by A-Rod.
Francona stood on the dugout steps while the umpires huddled, then bolted onto the field when they called Youkilis out. Francona got third base coach DeMarlo Hale and Youkilis away from the umps, then started to argue the call.
After an animated discussion, Francona was ejected for the fifth time this year. He argued a little longer before returning to the dugout.
