Rays veteran OF Carlos Gomez made his feelings about being ejected from Thursday's game by home plate umpire Andy Fletcher quite clear in a series of Twitter posts and a live video.
Gomez was in the dugout complaining about being called out on strikes after pinch-hitting with the bases loaded in the sixth.

In his posts and comments, Gomez suggested that Fletcher was not having a good night overall.

The Rays didn't either, blowing an 8-2 ninth-inning lead that may well have ended their longshot playoff chances in a 9-8 loss to Toronto.

The Rays are now 6 1/2 games back of the A's with only 10 to play.
