In the seventh inning, after removing starter Brandon Morrow with two Rays on base and the tying run at first, manager John Farrell got into it with home plate umpire Chad Fairchild and was ejected, his first time as Jays manager.

"I asked where the location of the two-strike breaking ball to (John) Jaso was, before he singled to right," Farrell said. "I wasn't argumentative by any means. He said, 'Are you arguing balls and strikes?' I said no. At that point he said, 'You're gone.'"

One out later, when the umpires changed a fielder's choice into an inning-ending double-play, Rays manager Joe Maddon joined him. For the fiery Rays skipper, it was his 18th ejection.
