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. (See more photos from Girardi’s ejection.)

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.
