ARLINGTON -- Second baseman Ian Kinsler was ejected for the second time this season during the Rangers' 2-1 loss to the Red Sox on Tuesday night at the Ballpark in Arlington.

Kinsler was ejected in the first inning by first-base umpire Tim Tschida after getting picked off by Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz. Kinsler reached after getting hit by a pitch. Buchholz then picked him off, Tschida called him out and Kinsler objected. That resulted in a quick ejection.

"Sometimes you say one word to the umpire and that's it," Rangers manager Ron Washington said.

Alberto Gonzalez took over at second base, appearing in a game for the first time since July 3. Kinsler's other ejection was on June 14 against the D-backs.
