Gausman ejected after another hit batter in Red Sox-Orioles

BOSTON (AP) Baltimore Orioles starter Kevin Gausman was ejected in the second inning of Wednesday night's game against the Red Sox after he hit Boston batter Xander Bogaerts with a pitch.

The teams had a conference call with Major League Baseball officials before the game in an attempt to end the recent spate of brushbacks and beanballs. Red Sox manager John Farrell said the message of the call was: ''Enough is enough.''
