 TORONTO (AP) -Alex Rodriguez was once again in the middle of trouble between the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays.
Rodriguez was hit by a pitch from Toronto's Josh Towers on Tuesday night, leading to both benches and bullpens emptying onto the field twice.
Several Blue Jays were angry at A-Rod after he distracted former Toronto infielder Howie Clark on a key popup late in a game on May 30, yelling at Clark as he approached third base.
Towers plunked the Yankees slugger on the knee in the top of the third and Rodriguez immediately took a few steps toward the mound before he was cut off by plate umpire Angel Hernandez. Jesse Litsch threw behind Rodriguez's legs in A-Rod's first at-bat in Monday's series opener.
The Yankees and Blue Jays spilled out onto the field after Rodriguez was hit. Toronto's Matt Stairs had to be restrained by New York's Andy Phillips as he tried to go after Rodriguez at first base.
After the field cleared and the umpires huddled to discuss the situation, Towers and Rodriguez exchanged words and walked toward each other. Rodriguez said, ``You talking to me. You talking to me,'' and was restrained by first base coach Tony Pena as both benches and bullpens came back onto the field again.
No punches were thrown either time and no one was ejected from the game.
Stairs sat on top of a cooler on the top step of the dugout following the incident, staring out at the field. Hernandez spoke with Yankees starter Roger Clemens before the bottom half of the inning.
Stairs and the Yankees' Jorge Posada were each hit by pitches in New York's 5-4 win on Monday. Rodriguez also slid hard into shortstop John McDonald while trying to break up a double play in the fourth, swiping his left arm in anger and yelling at second base umpire Derryl Cousins.
