The Red Sox lost Game 1 of the ALCS to the reigning World Series champions on Saturday night. The Astros put up 7 runs to win the game 7-2.
In the 5th inning of a tied game with the bases loaded Andrew Benintendi was called out on a boardline pitch with a 3-2 count. Benintendi didn’t like the call and neither did Red Sox manager Alex Cora, who earned himself an ejection for arguing.

After the game Cora discussed his early shower and simply said he was arguing balls and strikes. You can’t do that, although some umpires will certainly let you express your feelings.
