During the Astros' win over the Yankees Tuesday night, Carlos Gomez told Joe Girardi and the Yankees' dugout to "shut up," causing the benches to clear.
During the sixth-inning incident, Girardi instructed the "emotional" Gomez to "play the game the right way." In the eighth, Gomez nailed a three-run homer.
After the blowout, Gomez added he is not listening to Girardi, anyway.
"I don't care what Joe Girardi says," Gomez told ESPN Deportes' Marly Rivera.
Gomez said he understood the Yankees' frustration, but felt he wasn't trying to show them up.
