Aaron Boone ejected from Yankees-Rays game after barking at Brennan Miller

Aaron Boone umpire

Aaron Boone on Thursday was ejected from a game for the third time this season.

Boone was tossed from the New York Yankees-Tampa Bay Rays game by umpire Brennan Miller in the bottom of the second inning for complaining about balls and strikes.

Brett Gardner struck out looking on an inside pitch that he thought was a ball.

Gardner was frustrated as he went into the dugout and started banging his bat against the roof of the dugout. Boone began yelling at Miller over the call. The Yankees manager continued to yell during DJ LeMahieu’s at-bat and was finally ejected by Miller.

The transcription from Boone’s rant is amazing but contains profanity:

The Yankees had been upset with Miller over his strike zone for the entire game.

In the top of the first, Gary Sanchez couldn’t believe that a low pitch at the knees wasn’t called for a Domingo German strike.

German was squeezed on pitches low in the zone that Miller was missing.

In the bottom of the first, a very low pitch was called a strike against Aaron Judge.

Miller’s zone was very inconsistent. He is a young umpire just calling his fifth MLB game behind the plate as he was only called up from the minors in April.
