MLB Notebook: Gray, Yankees Struggle In Loss To Orioles

Shawn Kelley's outburst on the mound got him booted from the Washington Nationals.

The Nationals designated Kelley for assignment on Wednesday, a day after he threw his glove to the ground and glared into the dugout while working the ninth inning of a 25-4 blowout of the New York Mets.

Kelley entered the game with Washington leading 25-1. He appeared agitated and was working quickly, and he had already allowed a run when the plate umpire warned him to slow down. After the warning, he gave up a two-run homer to

Austin Jackson, prompting the outburst.

The Nationals set the team scoring mark dating to their days when they started as the Montreal Expos in 1969. It was the Mets' most-lopsided loss in their 57-season history, worse than a 26-7 pounding by Philadelphia in 1985.
