Two outs: Yanks' Boone, Thames ejected in 1st

NEW YORK -- Yankees manager Aaron Boone was ejected by crew chief Joe West in the first inning of New York's game against Toronto for arguing balls and strikes.

Boone yelled from the dugout Saturday at plate umpire Jeremie Rehak after Giancarlo Stanton struck out looking against Blue Jays starter T.J. Zeuch to end the inning. West tossed Boone from third base, and Rehak -- a recent call-up from Triple-A -- ejected Yankees hitting coach Marcus Thames.

Stanton watched three called strikes near the bottom of the strike zone and then exchanged words near home plate with Rehak.
