Phillips ejected for "retaliating"

The Yankees are playing the Tampa Bay Rays for the first time since the Francisco Cervelli incident on Saturday. Many people expected some sort of retaliation from the Yankees today.

Heath Phillips, starting in place of Andy Pettitte, had already given up two runs and had two runners on before nicking Evan Longoria with a pitch. He was immediately ejected by home plate umpire Chad Fairchild.

The pitch "barely brushed across the chest," according to Peter Abraham on the scene.
