Livid Yankees manager Aaron Boone is ejected AGAIN — the second time in four games and the fourth time this season — after arguing with umpires over boundary calls
Livid Yankees manager Aaron Boone was ejected for the fourth time this season and second in New York’s last four games when he argued with Edwin Moscoso over the umpire’s strike zone in Thursday night’s 3-1 loss against the Baltimore Orioles.
Boone held up four fingers while arguing with Moscoso, indicating that he believed the referee missed four calls.
Boone may also have spat on Moscoco during an argument, then got into a fight with first base umpire Chris Guccione after ejecting.
Boone was ejected shortly after Gunnar Henderson lined out to first to end the top of the third inning. Henderson worked a six-pitch walk in the first in which Moscoso called balls on three boundary fields. Henderson made two pitches to the outside corner on called balls in his third inning at bat.
Boone was ejected on April 12 against Cleveland, on May 15 against Toronto and on Sunday against Cincinnati. He has been ejected fifty times in over five seasons as manager of the Yankees.

Boone furiously left the dugout and began arguing his case with second base umpire Brian O’Nora—he said that Ceja’s decision to call it foul meant the Yankees thought the action was dead and therefore had no action to go to the plate. made.
