Enraged Gabe Kapler ejected after odd Mookie Betts-Jarlin Garcia incident

The enraged Kapler was ejected after a strange Betts-García incident originally surfaced on NBC Sports Bayarea
SAN FRANCISCO -- Frustration boiled over for Giants players in recent weeks, reaching the manager's chair Thursday at Oracle Park against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Gabe Kapler was ejected for the first time in his three seasons as Giants manager and fifth time overall in his managerial career. Kapler got into a heated argument with the referee crew after Jarlin García and Mookie Betts exchanged words, and he was thrown by crew chief Phil Cuzzi before the end of the sixth.
The incident began when García punched rookie James Outman, then pointed in the direction of Outman and Betts and patted his head, possibly a reference to how the Dodgers pat their helmets when landing a big hit. Betts motioned to García, who put his hands by his sides.
The umpire crew went to the Giants dugout after the inning and appeared to warn both teams. Kapler was furious and left it to the referee crew. It was by far his most fiery moment on the field since becoming Giants manager.
However, the Dodgers might have had the last laugh. They led 4-2 at that point and Trea Turner extended the lead with a solo shot in the seventh set. As he passed the Giants dugout, he mimicked García's celebration.
