Rays manager Joe Maddon has been ejected from Thursday's game in the fifth inning by home plate umpire Jim Wolf.

RELATED NEWS/ARCHIVE

Maddon had come to the mound to call in LHP Randy Choate, and continued to argue with Wolf - as well as yell towards first base umpire Jerry Meals - over a controversial ball call on a check swing in the previous at-bat. Rangers third baseman Michael Young, facing a 2-2 count, checked his swing and appeared to go through, but after appealing to Meals - it was called a ball; it would have been the third out. On the next pitch, Young hit a three-run homer off RHP Chad Qualls, giving the Rangers a 5-0 lead.

The fans at the Trop began chanting "REPLAY! REPLAY!" during the inning.
