DETROIT (AP) — New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi has been ejected from a game against the Detroit Tigers.

Girardi was tossed during a demonstrative argument with third base umpire Tim Welke over a fair-or-foul call in the fifth inning Thursday.

He was upset after Detroit’s Andy Dirks hit a go-ahead double down the line because Welke put his hands up to indicate it was a foul ball, then signaled it was fair.

Replays weren’t conclusive.

Girardi raised his arms up several times, threw his hat and had to be separated from Welke more than once by second base umpire Bob Davidson.

As he walked off, Girardi gestured that Quintin Berry should go back to first base and Dirks should bat again.

Girardi has been ejected three times this season, all against Detroit.
