Orioles manager Buck Showalter and Yankees manager Joe Girardi had to be separated when each bounded from the dugout in the first inning on Monday night at Camden Yards in a game the Orioles would go on to win, 4-2.

It started when Girardi started yelling out of the dugout towards Orioles third-base coach Bobby Dickerson, perhaps to accuse him of stealing signs. Showalter at the end of the inning came out of the dugout, saying amid expletives "That's not right, Joe." That led Girardi to come out with bench coach Tony Pena close behind.

The umpires and other coaches quickly intervened as the benches emptied and the two managers were kept away from each other. The umps issued warnings to both benches but the game continued incident free.

CSN Baltimore has this account of the incident, including postgame quotes from the managers and here's the YouTube video.
