Banks free, Schneider ejected, in Baltimore

BALTIMORE (AP) — Benches were cleared during the seventh inning of Baltimore’s game against Toronto on Tuesday night after Orioles reliever Bryan Baker appeared to wave a hand toward the Blue Jays’ dugout.

Baker struckout Matt Chapman to end the top of the seventh inning, then appeared to make a “beep” with his hand. Players from both banks were quick on the field and the bullpens joined them.

The situation didn’t escalate too much from there, although Vladimir Guerrero Jr. seemed particularly excited for the Blue Jays. Cool heads prevailed and as players made the long walk back to the bullpen, “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” played at Camden Yards.

However, during the bottom of the seventh, Blue Jays interim manager John Schneider was ejected and came out to lend an ear to plate umpire Jeff Nelson.

There was a history between Toronto and Nelson who sent Charlie Montoyo, the previous Blue Jays manager, out of an April game after Montoyo questioned his strike zone.
