On Monday night, the Orioles further hampered the Yankees’ playoff hopes with a 4-2 victory, but the fireworks were flying long before the game ever ended. In the very first inning, Yankees’ manager Joe Girardi bolted to the end of his dugout in order to scream at Orioles’ third base coach Bobby Dickerson and accused him of stealing signs. That didn’t sit well with Orioles’ manager Buck Showalter, who stormed out of his dugout at Girardi before both were intercepted by the umpires. Warnings were issued to both squads.
