Cubs manager David Ross launches into expletive-laden rant at home plate umpire after being ejected for the FOURTH time this season in 7-4 win over the Yankees

David Ross, the manager of the Chicago Cubs, was kicked out of his team’s game against the New York Yankees on Sunday after he cursed at home plate umpire Alex MacKay after a throwing call and before the All-Star break.

Ross, who has won the World Series twice and is in his fourth year as Cubs manager, was thrown out in the bottom of the first when he seemed to disagree with a call that went against Kyle Hendricks, the Cubs’ starting pitcher.

The 46-year-old has been in charge of the Cubs since 2020. He stormed out of the bench and onto the field at Yankees Stadium to talk about MacKay’s officiating, which was picked up by the Yankees’ broadcasters. “You need to do better,” Ross yelled at MacKay as he came close to bumping into the judge. Mics picked up what he said. “You have one  game left before you get a break, and you’re already that bad?”

Ross didn’t stop there, though. He seemed to swear at McKay again before leaving the field, but the Yankees radio crew was talking over the field mic at the time, so the swearing didn’t get picked up. Ross was thrown out of Sunday’s game, which was the 14th time he has been thrown out of a Cubs game during his time as manager. He only needs one more ejection to match Yankees manager Aaron Boone’s total of five ejections through the first half of the MLB season.

Ross said after the game, “I think he got tired of hearing me yell.” Six innings after their manager threw the ball, Cubs catcher Yan Gomes hιt a pinch-hιt two-run single in the seventh after second baseman Gleyber Torres made a fielding error. In the eighth, Seiya Suzuki hιt a go-ahead sacrifice fly to give Chicago a 7-4 win over New York. Ron Marinaccio (4-4) let Mike Tauchman hιt a single to start the eighth, and then Nico Hoerner and Ian Happ walked.

Suzuki hιt a home run in the fifth, which was the Cubs’ only hιt off of Domingo Germán. Next, he hιt a sacrifice fly off of Clay Holmes, and Tauchman easily scored when right fielder Giancarlo Stanton’s throw was a little off line.

Suzuki said through a translation, “I just wanted to get that run in from third, and as you can see, there were five infielders.” “So I could only hιt that sacrifice fly,” he said. I’m glad I had the chance to do that. Hoerner scored the sixth run when Holmes threw a wild pitch over catcher Kyle Higashioka’s glove and into the outfield. In the ninth inning, Tucker Barnhart hιt a double that drove in a run.

Ross said after his team’s second win in a three-game series against the Yankees, “That was a really nice team win, and I think we needed that going into the break.”

“These guys have really fought. The way we’ve been coming back to this place recently has been really amazing.

After the game, Dillon Lawson was fired as the hιtting coach for New York. Since star right fielder Aaron Judge got hurt on June 3, the Yankees’ offense has been bad. Since Judge got hurt in his right big toe, the Yankees’ record has gone from 14-17 to 17-14.

The Cubs (42-47) won their fifth game in 14 since June 24, when they bҽat St. Louis 9-1 in London and got within one game of.500.
