Boone, Gardner, Yanks hammer umps in 6-5 win over Indians

Indians outfielder Yasiel Puig is back in the lineup for Thursday night's game against the Yankees after serving a three-game suspension

Another day, another Yankees meltdown that ended with Brett Gardner and others getting ejected by the umpires.

Last week in Toronto, Gardner was thrown out of a game by umpire Chris Segal while he was sitting quietly on the bench in the dugout.

"I think there would be a lot of benefit to that", Yankees Manager Aaron Boone said Friday, responding to a question about the mercy rule.

With the fans screaming, and security personnel coming onto the field, several Yankees were hollering from the dugout, engaging in a close-up argument with first base ump Phil Cuzzi.

Maybin was rung up on a 3-2 pitch that looked outside after Gleyber Torres hit his second solo homer of the afternoon with one out in the Yankees sixth to increase their lead to 6-4. "Got ejected for hitting the top of the dugout with my bat, making too much noise I guess". We're playing for keeps.

"Frankly, I think it escalated because they came looking for it", he said.

The conflict continues to take a horrific toll on civilians. Some US forces carry out counter-terrorism operations. No group immediately claimed responsibility.

"I didn't receive any memos saying that (banging the bat on the dugout) was illegal", he added.

"I'm not saying what I did was right", Gardner said. Gardner, emulating an elderly neighbor living below a rowdy group of friends, began to pound the top of the NY dugout with his bat, a common sight from the veteran when expressing frustration.

"It felt like that a little bit of that", Boone said.

"Just in that couple innings, obviously we objected to a few calls", Boone explained after the game.

James Paxton (9-6) went five innings for the win. And on July 18, Boone screamed and hollered at a rookie umpire, leading to the expletive-filled rant where the manager called his hitters "savages" in the batter's box.

Why you would try to defend actions like this, no matter the situation, is beyond us. "We'll work closely with the Commissioner's Office and find out what's acceptable and not and be respectful of that".
