Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon was ejected after arguing with home plate umpire Paul Emmel in the third inning of Sunday's game.

With the Yankees up 5-0 in the third, starter Matt Moore threw a pitch that sailed above the head of Curtis Granderson. Both benches were then warned by Emmel, which led to Maddon's argument. It's his fourth ejection of the year.

After not getting a hit the first two innings, the Yankees exploded for five in the third behind the bat of Russell Martin, who hit a three-run homer. Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez each added RBI singles.
