BOSTON (AP) — Both managers and Red Sox outfielder Andrew Benintendi have been ejected from a game Tuesday night between Boston and Texas.

Benintendi and Red Sox manager Alex Cora were tossed in the fifth inning by first base umpire Vic Carapazza, and Texas manager Chris Woodward was tossed by plate umpire Angel Hernandez in the sixth.

Benintendi appeared to be upset with Hernandez. He turned and shouted toward home plate after grounding out, prompting the ejection from Carapazza. Cora came out to argue and got into it with Carapazza and Hernandez near first base before being given his third career ejection. While Cora yelled at both umpires, Benintendi continued to bark from the top step of the dugout.

A half-inning later, Woodward stormed from the dugout after an overturned call at second base. Asdrubal Cabrera was initially called safe trying to stretch a single into a double, but second base umpire Jordan Baker changed his ruling. Woodward went straight for Hernandez, who let him rant for a bit before issuing the ejection.
