There is no love lost between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles, who began an important four-game series on Monday night at Camden Yards and during the 1st inning, tempers began to flare.
While the game went to a commercial break and it was in between innings, Yankees manager Joe Girardi and Orioles manager Buck Showalter got into a very heated shouting match and it got to the point to where both managers had to be restrained by the umpires. Neither manager was tossed during the altercation and went back to their respective dugouts.
Although nobody knows officially why the argument happened between Girardi and Showalter, during the telecast on the YES Network, the announcers speculated that Showalter might have been arguing over the Yankees potentially stealing signals; which has been a common part of baseball for many years, but one that isn't appreciated when teams find out about it.
The series between the Yankees and Orioles is the final time the two will meet in the regular season. Last year in the 2012 ALDS, the Yankees eliminated the Orioles in a gritty five-game series.
