Let’s just say controversy reigned supreme last night north of the border between the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays.

The Yankees won the game 6-3, Aaron Judge hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning that proved to be the difference, and, no he did not make a glance toward the first base dugout this time, but that didn’t stop controversy from brewing.

Judge was booed viciously by Toronto fans just a night after he was accused of stealing signs with that glance, a claim Judge rebuffed on Monday. When he crossed  home plate after the homer, he made sure to shield his eyes from the Toronto dugout.

That was nothing compared to the other fireworks.

Yankees starter Domingo German was tossed from the game for an illegal foreign substance after tossing three perfect innings. Like Mets’ starter Max Scherzer in April, German faces a 10-game suspension.

Then there was the wild back and forth between Manager Aaron Boone and Toronto manager John Schneider over the positioning of the third base coaches. Schneider made a point over the positioning of Yankees third base coach Luis Rojas who got into an argument with the umpires. As Boone came out of the dugout, Schneider could be seen on camera telling Boone to “shut up.”

Asked about the kerfuffle afterwards, Boone tried to downplay the episode. “It’s just silliness,” Boone said. “It’s ridiculous and I think everyone, I hope on both sides, realizes it.”
