Found July 27, 2013 on Reading Between The Seams:
Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz was extremely dissatisfied with a call of home plate umpire Tim Timmons, and he let everyone know about it.  After a 3-0 (relatively high) pitch was called strike one by Baltimore Orioles reliever Jairo Asencio, Ortiz never recovered and whiffed badly on a pitch out of the zone.  After saying a few words on his way to the dugout, he way took his bat to a dugout phone, drawing the heave-ho from Timmons and had to be restrained by management and Dustin Pedroia.  During which he hurled his elbow guard Timmons way. Odd for this kind of reaction in a 7-2 game late innings, but Big Papi will be Big Papi and it was a key division game.  Fines for dugout damage and equipment abuse coming.
