Matters heated up between MLB umpire CB Buckner and Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol.
After a very questionable strike call on All-Star third baseman Nolan Arenado, Buckner quickly threw Marmol, who heard him from the dugout.
The MLB world reacted to the exchange on social media.
"Raw!!" TV anchor Randy Naughton commented.
"Good for him, ump show is out of hand," said another.
"He's smiling because he knows umps get away with being terrible and nothing is done about it."
Another tweeted, "Umpires can't kick people out of important games when they make horrible calls like this."
"The umpire on a power trip. Look at his face, he loves that he's getting attention.
This has got to stop. Though glad to see Marmol stand up for his player."
"That's how you get your money's worth," said another.
"Was hooked from the dugout but still got almost a solid minute."
It was not the first poor strike call for Buckner on Sunday.
