Cox ejected in second inning of Braves' tilt

Cox ejected in second inning of Braves' tilt

NEW YORK -- Braves manager Bobby Cox began the final regular-season road trip of his managerial career by adding to his all-time ejections record.

Home-plate umpire Bill Hohn issued the ejection while Cox objected to a second-inning walk drawn by Mets first baseman Ike Davis on Friday night at Citi Field.

Having already been ejected, Cox exited the dugout and argued with Hohn, who listened for a short span and then attempted to subdue the confrontation by walking toward the Mets' dugout.

Cox, who has earned 158 career ejections, then continued to argue with first-base umpire Gary Darling before heading back to the clubhouse.
