Pitching coach Farrell tossed for arguing

OAKLAND -- Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell was ejected in the 10th inning of Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the A's after arguing a check-swing call with plate umpire Bob Davidson.

With the scored tied at 4 and runners at first and second with one out, A's pinch-hitter Adam Rosales tried to hold up his swing on a 2-2 pitch. The Red Sox then appealed to first-base umpire Angel Campos, who deemed Rosales didn't go around.

Farrell and manager Terry Francona yelled at Davidson from the dugout, before Davidson ejected Farrell. Francona then came on to the field to discuss with Davidson before Rosales eventually struck out. After the game, Francona said he believed Rosales went around with his swing.

One batter later, Kevin Kouzmanoff hit the game-winning single to right field, scoring Daric Barton.
