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.
