Four members of the Boston Red Sox were ejected in their game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Fenway Park on Friday night.

A bench clearing scuffle broke out in the fourth inning when Rays left-hander David Price hit Sox first baseman Mike Carp with a pitch.

Price was not ejected for the pitch but David Ortiz emerged pointing and shouting at him while being restrained by Rays catcher Jose Molina.

Red Sox manager John Farrell was ejected in the first inning after Price hit Ortiz with a pitch and he voiced his objections to the umpires.

Bench coach Torey Lovullo was ejected after the scuffle in the fourth and forced the Red Sox to utilise their third coach of the night Brian Butterfield but he also didn't last long in the game.

Starter Brandon Workman was the fourth man ejected at the top of the sixth after throwing a pitch behind Tampa Bay slugger Evan Longoria.

Hitting coach Greg Colbrunn became the acting manager of the Red Sox after the four ejections entering the seventh inning with scores tied at 2-2
