FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Red Sox manager Jimy Williams is starting this season the same way he finished the last one: arguing with umpires.
The usually mild-mannered Boston manager was at it again on Friday night when Marcus Jensen homered over the right-field foul pole in Minnesota's 5-2 victory over the Red Sox. Williams came out to first base to argue, then stopped by home plate on his way back to the third-base dugout.
That's when he was ejected.
''He didn't like my dinner reservation restaurant, that's about it,'' Williams said, his arms still folded across his chest as he sat in his office in the clubhouse. ''I don't know why he threw me out.''
Williams was ejected from Game 4 of the AL championship series last year after two bad calls went against Boston. Another, in Game 1 of the playoff series against the Yankees, cost the Red Sox an extra-inning scoring opportunity.
Williams' complaint last season, and again Friday, was that the umpires should ask each other for assistance when there is doubt about a call.
''I just want them to get help,'' Williams said. ''I just want them to be a team, that's it. I just don't quite get it.''
Williams had to leave the dugout and had to miss the spring training debut of his 20-year-old son, Brady. The younger Williams played third base and struck out leading off the eighth inning.
''I was thrown out of the game. I can't be in sight (of the field),'' Williams said. ''Let's just talk about the game.''
Jensen, who's battling for a catching job, and David Ortiz hit consecutive home runs off Dario Perez in the fourth inning.
Former Twin Gary Gaetti homered for the second straight day, hitting Jack Cressend's first pitch over the wall in left field. The 41-year-old Gaetti is a longshot to make Boston's roster, but he is 3-for-8 (.375) this spring.
Bryce Florie, who's trying to earn a spot in the Red Sox rotation, allowed three runs, five hits and two walks in three innings. Minnesota starter Mark Redman gave up three hits in three scoreless innings, striking out two.
Derek Lowe pitched a scoreless ninth for for Boston.
