Blue Jays manager John Gibbons has had trouble staying in the dugout for the entirety of a baseball game. He was ejected on Sunday, May 15 in the third inning of the infamous game against the Rangers during which Rougned Odor punched Jose Bautista. Gibbons was again ejected last Monday arguing a called strike three on Troy Tulowitzki.

Gibbons made it three ejections in eight games on this Sunday afternoon. Twins starter Phil Hughes threw a couple of inside fastballs at Josh Donaldson, who hit the second of back-to-back home runs with Bautista in the first inning. Gibbons insisted to crew chief Joe West that warnings should be issued, but West disagreed and eventually ejected Gibbons.

Gibbons was also ejected once in April arguing a check-swing call in favor of White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton.

The Blue Jays still managed to beat the Twins 3-1 on Sunday, taking three games out of the four-game set in Minnesota.
