New York Yankees skipper Aaron Boone managed to get ejected from Friday's game after it already ended.

The Yankees lost 2-1 in 11 innings after closer Aroldis Chapman issued a bases-loaded walk on a borderline pitch. Immediately following the call, Boone emerged from the dugout and got in the face of home plate umpire Tom Hallion. The two exchanged words as Boone followed him off the field.

It was the 18th ejection of his managerial career.

Following the game, Boone said he initially came out in order to protect catcher Jose Trevino, who was protesting the call.

"(I) didn't want Jose to get in trouble there," Boone said.

Boone declined to disclose what the umpire said that set him off.

"I dunno," he said. "A lot of frustration there."

Chapman entered the game with the bases loaded and one out in the inning. He struck out Cedric Mullins before walking Ramon Urias to end the game.

The star closer admitted Hallion made the right call.

"They were very close pitches but at the end I lost the batter," Chapman said through a translator.

He added: "Looking at it I feel like the pitches were close and could have gone either way. The last one, I thought it was a little high."
