Benches clear in Red Sox vs. Rays game

May 25, 2014, 5:19 PM EDT

The Red Sox didn’t like it when Yunel Escobar of the Rays took third base with his team leading 8-3 in the bottom of the seventh inning Sunday at Tropicana Field. MLB.com has the video …

It looks like Red Sox backup catcher David Ross was doing most of the jawing at Escobar from the dugout and then Gomes ran in from left field. Gomes, Escobar, and Sean Rodriguez were ejected.

Boston took a 10th straight loss in Sunday’s game. The defending champs are clearly frustrated.

    I thought it was interesting how Gomes gave his glove to the guy taking over in the OF for him. What, are we playing old-timey baseball where you share gloves and leave them at your spot during the inning change for the other team?

      Gomes gave his glove to Carp because Carp went to left from first base where he left his first baseman’s glove. It was much faster than Carp running into the clubhouse to grab his outfielder’s glove. Make sense? “:^)

    Nice to see posts that don’t involve Puig or A-Rod. How refreshing!

      And so you put Puig and A-roid into a post. How bizarre

    Rays/Sox get into this every year. Rays have no fear of the big bad sox. Good for them

      Sorta like what happened to the big, bad, Bruins when they played the Canadians.

    First off, since there isn’t a clock in baseball, no lead is truly safe. Some are relatively safe, but 5 runs in the 7th surely isn’t a lock. The BS about not stealing or playing hard with a lead needs to stop. We’ve seen too many leads blown to assume anything. The teams that are behind need to keep playing hard and paying attention, instead of assuming the team that is leading will just give in and quit trying.

    But, that said, Escobar needs to ignore the people yelling from the bench and not escalate things. After which, he sure seemed to be doing the “hold me back guys” thing and backing away really quickly. Don’t escalate the fight and then let someone else fight it.

    You guys who are calling out Gomes forgot about the Latin curse called “machismo”. He can’t help being a tough guy: it’s in his Latin genes. Not that there’s anything wrong with that!

      Jonny Gomes is Portuguese. That’s not Latin, or even Hispanic.

      I know you’re cracking a joke, but I’m just saying.
