BOSTON -- Boston designated hitter David Ortiz and Baltimore reliever Kevin Gregg were ejected for fighting in the eighth inning of Boston's 10-3 win Friday night.

Neither player connected after a flurry of punches in the second confrontation between the two in the inning.

Gregg had thrown two pitches inside to Ortiz, who started toward the mound after the second. Players from both benches and bullpens trotted onto the field, but nothing developed.

Gregg then got Ortiz to pop out and shouted something to the Boston slugger, who charged and met Gregg about halfway between the mound and first base line.

Umpire Mike Estabrook, who had already ejected Gregg, couldn't quite reach Ortiz in time to stop him. The benches and bullpens cleared again and took several minutes to settle down as Boston fans cheered "Pa-pi!"

Ortiz and catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia were both ejected for Boston. Gregg and reliever Jim Johnson were tossed for the Orioles.

I bet the pitcher said something to get that started. He knew Ortiz was already mad because of nearly being hit and then to further provoke him is just stupidty. Both players were just plain stupid.

This team(orioles) is the biggest joke in sports



It's ridiculous to see a 36-48 team with so much arrogance.

Great. I have sucky relievers on my Fantasy team and Gregg is one of those sucky relievers. He got suspended but is appealing. I'll have to find a scrub when he has to serve his suspension. Jackhole.
