Cleveland, OH - Cleveland Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco was ejected in the fourth inning of Friday's game with Kansas City after throwing at Royals designated hitter Billy Butler's head.

Carrasco, who surrendered a grand slam to Melky Cabrera before throwing at Butler, was ejected immediately by home plate umpire Scott Barry.

After clubbing his second career grand slam, Cabrera admired his blast by standing in the batter's box, watching the ball sail into the bleachers for a 7-0 lead and provoking the inside pitch.

The benches cleared but order was swiftly restored by the umpiring crew.
