ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Aaron Boone has been ejected from a game for the first time as a big league manager.

Boone, managing his 46th game for the New York Yankees, was tossed by home plate Pat Hoberg with two outs in the sixth inning of Tuesday night’s game at Texas after apparently arguing balls and strikes from the dugout.

Hoberg glanced into the Yankees dugout after calling a high strike that put Gary Sanchez in an 0-2 count. The umpire then ejected Boone, who came out of the dugout and had a few choice words for Hoberg before leaving the field.

Sanchez eventually drew a walk against Cole Hamels before Didi Gregorius popped out to end the inning with the Yankees trailing 6-1.
