NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees manager Joe Girardi has been ejected from Game 2 of the AL championship series after arguing what appeared to be a missed call by second base umpire Jeff Nelson.

New York was trailing 1-0 with two outs in the eighth inning when Austin Jackson singled with Omar Infante on first. Right fielder Nick Swisher threw to second, where Infante had run past the base, and Robinson Cano appeared to tag him on the chest sliding back.

After Boone Logan relieved, pinch-hitter Avisail Garcia blooped a single to right for a 2-0 lead and Girardi returned to the mound to bring in Joba Chamberlain. Girardi got into a heated discussion and was tossed on his 48th birthday.

Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera followed with another single for a 3-0 lead.

Four of Girardi’s five ejections this year have come in games against Detroit.
