Red Sox Vs. Marlins Final Score: Ozzie Guillen Ejected In 5-3 Boston Win

The Boston Red Sox improved to 5-2 in spring training with a 5-3 win over the Florida Marlins on Monday afternoon. Josh Beckett struggled early, hitting two batters and walking in a run in the first inning. He retired nine straight batters over the final three frames, giving up just one run on a single hit in 57 pitches.

The bigger story was Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen, who was ejected in the top of the sixth inning for arguing with an umpire over whether a fair/foul call had been made before the ball had traveled past the first-base bag. Guillen reportedly told Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine to "go [bleep] himself" after Valentine waved as Guillen passed Boston's dugout on his way to tunnel.

Pedro Ciriaco won the game for the Red Sox in the 10th inning on a two-run home run off of Alejandro Ramos. Nick Punto, Kelly Shoppach and Cody Ross also batted runs in. Mike Aviles doubled and tripled in his three appearances at the plate.
