Aaron Judge gets ejected for first time in Yankees career

Aaron Judge collected a pair of hits Saturday, then got hit with an ejection.

The Yankees captain got a quick hook in the bottom of the seventh inning when he was called out on strikes and expressed his displeasure while walking back to the dugout.

Once home plate umpire Ryan Blakney tossed Judge from the game — after he apparently said the magic word — the center fielder came back to get his money’s worth, although still in a somewhat measured argument.

Manager Aaron Boone hopped out of the dugout to defend Judge, at times holding him back during his back-and-forth with Blakney.

The ejection was the first of Judge’s career.

The 6-foot-7 slugger is no stranger to having low strikes called against him — though this one was a 3-2 fastball that appeared to clip the outside edge of the zone — but he rarely shows much frustration with umpires.

In his first two at-bats Saturday, Judge had recorded a single and RBI double, coming around to score both times.
