KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Royals manager Mike Matheny didn’t stay long in the Royals’ Friday night game vs. the New York Yankees.
In the bottom of the second inning, rookie Bobby Witt Jr. was caught in a rundown while trying to steal third base. He outran Yankees second basemen Gleyber Torres but while sliding into third, Torres slid with him and pushed him off the bag.
Witt was called out at third.
This is the 19th ejection of Matheny’s managerial career.
