CLEVELAND (AP) - Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona and pitching coach Mickey Callaway have been ejected in the third inning against the Minnesota Twins.

The ejections came after a replay review Wednesday night upheld a ruling on the field that right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall didn’t catch a fly ball hit by Max Kepler. Chisenhall attempted to make a diving catch, and Francona immediately challenged the call.

Although replays shown on the Progressive Field scoreboard indicated Chisenhall made the catch, the call on the field stood. Francona and Callaway were tossed by plate umpire Manny Gonzalez for arguing.

Kepler was credited with a two-run single that gave Minnesota an 8-2 lead.
