Jays' Bautista tossed in tie game

Jose Bautista The last series between the Yankees and Blue Jays, Jose Bautista was yelling at Yankees pitchers. On Saturday, it was home plate umpire Ed Hickox on the other side of Bautista's braking.

With two on and no outs in a tie game, Bautista was called out on strikes against New York's Joba Chamberlain. Bautista let Hickox know what he thought of the call and was ejected.

Replays and MLB.com's pitch tracker both showed the ball was well outside, bolstering Bautista's point.

But being right doesn't make the situation any better. Bautista is the Jays' best shot at untying the game with a single swing. The next Jays batter, Vernon Wells, grounded into a double play to end the inning. The Yankees' Marcus Thames hit a two-run homer in the bottom half of the inning to untie the game.

Bautista leads the majors with 43 home runs and hit two against the Yankees on Aug. 23, including one after New York starter Ivan Nova threw near his head.
