Boone goes on profane rant as Yanks top Rays 6-2

NEW YORK (AP) Yankees manager Aaron Boone got fired up at a rookie umpire in a profane rant , and New York awoke from a sleepy start to rally past the Tampa Bay Rays 6-2 in a doubleheader opener Thursday.

After Domingo German gave up solo homers to his first two batters, Gio Urshela hit a tying home run in the second off Yonny Chirinos, and Gary Sanchez smashed a go-ahead 110 mph single off the glove of third baseman Yandy Diaz during a three-run fifth. Diaz had helped the Yankees come alive when he dropped Didi Gregorius' leadoff popup in the second for a two-base error.

Boone fumed after rookie umpire Brennan Miller called Brett Gardner out on strikes in the second inning. Miller, umpiring behind the plate for the fifth time in the major leagues, had punched out Aaron Judge in the first. Gardner batted in the second after Urshela's tying, two-run homer and struck out on a 1-2 pitch.
