Neither the manager of the Houston Astros A.J. Hinch and his counterpart of the New York Yankees, Aaron Boone, appreciated the areas of their respective referees, so they decided to share their ideas and were subsequently expelled.
Boone's reaction was particularly notable as he took the time to prove to local referee Nic Lentz where the strike zone is located when the Yankees defeated the Detroit Tigers 7-5 in MLB on Friday.
"I just had a problem with the area in key releases that were lost," Boone told reporters after the game.
Hinch was also upset with the referee in the Astros' 3-0 loss to the Los Angeles Angels and was thrown without even going to the field.
Eric Cooper threw it while Hinch was still in the dugout. Then he left the confines of his seat to give Cooper an idea when he thought he was only protecting his star player.
"I ran out of game," Hinch told reporters after the game. He added that he was simply trying to defend José Altuve, of whom he said that Cooper was following him to the dugout.
GARVER SPARKS TWINS
Minnesota Twins catcher Mitch Garver went three for five with two doubles and four RBIs in the team's 10-7 victory over the Texas Rangers .
Tampa Bay Rays starter Tyler Glasnow took to the court with Corey Kluber on Friday, allowing only one clean run in seven innings. The problem was that Kluber gave up zero on seven with eight strikeouts in a 3-0 victory for the Cleveland Indians.
