Aaron Boone receives one-game suspension for explosive tirade

Rookie umpire Brennan Miller was behind the Rays' catcher calling the strikes on home plate when he drew the ire of Yankees coach Aaron Boone, who launched into an expletive-laden rant at the young official as he was ejected from the game. "Tighten it up right now, OK?"

Tensions were running hot in New York's dugout, where Gardner left dents in the roof by repeatedly slamming his bat into it. Boone said he sensed someone was going to be ejected and decided to make sure it was him instead of one of his players. Miller eventually had enough and tossed him from the game.

Aaron continued, "I feel bad for ya". That's when Boone stormed onto the field and got in his final words before hitting the showers. We were pretty heated there, several of our guys there in the first couple of innings.

The ejection was triggered by a missed strikeout call in the second inning of Game 1, prompting Boone to run out to home plate and deliver one of his lengthier and more freakish rants of the season.

"I was just making noise".

"I loved it", Yankees starting pitcher Domingo German said through an interpreter. "I felt that it was my responsibility to go back out there and return the favor". The Yankees went on to win the game 6-2.

Yankees players praised Boone for stepping in, with slugger Luke Voit saying "we appreciate it, and we are a bunch of savages". "I respect the job they have to do".

Shouting matches between managers and umpires are nothing new in the world of Major League Baseball, but fans were treated to a particularly spicy one on Thursday night during the Tampa Bay New York clash at Yankee Stadium.
