Yankees manager Aaron Boone was managed for the seventh time in MLB during New York’s game against Tampa Bay this season.

Boone came out to argue a catcher’s interference call against Kyle Higashioka before being sent to the showers in the bottom of the fifth inning on Sunday.

Boone and the Yankees were already frustrated with home plate umpire Vic Carapazza after a call early in the inning when the team thought a pop-up would hit the screen behind home plate before being caught by Christian Bethancourt.

The Yankees eventually challenged the game, which was confirmed, allowing them not to ask for a review later when Taylor Walls received first base due to catcher interference.

New York would go on to win the game 2-1, thanks in large part to Aaron Judge hitting his 53rd home run in the league and also scoring with a sacrificial fly.

The win brings a welcome change of pace for the Yankees after losing six of their last eight games.

It’s unclear if Boone’s sacking had any impact on the game, but the Yankees manager will likely be happy nonetheless after challenging his team to turn the season around on Saturday.

“We have the people for it,” Boone said of a trend reversal. “If we don’t dig us out, you’ve got a great story to write.”

New York will look to maintain Monday’s wins as they begin a four-game streak against the Minnesota Twins.
