Yankees manager Aaron Boone thought home plate umpire Nic Lentz wasn't calling a good game behind the plate. So, he decided to show him instead of just saying it.
Lentz ejected Boone, who was chirping from the dugout about balls and strikes, and the Yankee skipper ran out to home plate to give him more. In doing so, Boone crouched behind home and showed Lentz what is a ball and strike.
After the game, Boone explained what caused him to get ejected in the first place.
"I just had some issues with the zone on a couple pitches, key pitches that I felt like, you know, were missed and I took exception to it and I guess he had heard enough," Boone told YES Network's Jack Curry.
Boone' ejection woke up the sleepy Yankee bats as well. In the sixth, Brett Gardner belted a two-run homer to put the Yankees on the board, but that wouldn't be all. Aaron Hicks and Miguel Andujar hit back-to-back solo shots to take a 4-3 lead.
"I thought we came in with a good purpose today from the get-go," Boone said about the rally. "Obviously took us a little while to get going and I think [Jordan] Zimmermann had a big deal to do with that. I thought he threw really well. And then Gardy really lit a fire for us there and we're able to put up a big inning and continue to fight."
