For Boston, Saturday night’s loss to the Royals was a train wreck.

There were balks, an error, gopher balls and ejections. David Ortiz was tossed after a theatrical bat flip and a disagreement with home plate umpire Bruce Dreckman. For his part, Ortiz did try to eject Dreckman, but it didn’t take.

You can watch the bat flip and the whole exchange here.
