Toronto Blue Jays played against the New York Yankees on Tuesday. This game was one of the most thrilling games of the season. Apart from a stunning game-changing home run from Aaron Judge, this game also saw some heated moments in the ballpark.

Just a week ago, when these two teams faced each other in Toronto, the Blue Jays put a brake on their 11-game winning streak. Although the Blue Jays lost the series by 2-1, they did not let the Yankees dominate them.

However, the two sides met again on Tuesday. But this time in the fortress of the Yankees, i.e., the Bronx. Thanks to Judge’s home run, the Yankees won the thriller 6-5. However, the umpiring was not up to the mark in the game. Not only the player but the Blue Jays’ pitching coach and manager also got ejected from the game.

Fans show outrage against poor umpiring during the Toronto Blue Jays Vs New York Yankees

It is not the first time the umpiring has been questionable in the 2022 season. And during the Tuesday game, the Blue Jays became the recent victim. The Blue Jays pitcher Yusei Kikuchi gave the ball to reliever Yimi Garcia in the sixth inning of the game

Later, in the game, Garcia threw a nasty pitch to the Yankees hitter, Josh Donaldson. The fastball hit straight to the arm of Donaldson. Though Donaldson did not react much from the plate, he knew it might not be intentional. But the umpires took a quick decision and ejected Garcia and pitching coach Pete Walker from the game.

Things became normal after a few minutes. But, once again, after a heated argument in the ballpark, the home plate umpire Lance Barrett ejected the Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo.

After the multiple ejections from the umpires, baseball fans got furious and showed their outburst on Twitter.
