The Toronto Blue Jays were looking good through the first five innings of their game against the rival New York Yankees on Tuesday, May 10. Then, things got out of control in the sixth, as the Yankees got their first hits of the game and ended up tying the game 3-3 on a three-run homer by Giancarlo Stanton.
But in the very next at-bat, pitcher Yimi Garcia hit Yankees third baseman Josh Donaldson in the arm. Even though it was the second pitch of the at-bat during a tie game, Garcia was thrown out by the umpire.
Garcia had to be physically restrained by his teammates after the decision was made.
