Rangers catcher Yorvit Torrealba accused Yankees outfielder Andruw Jones of stealing signs on Wednesday night.
Torrealba made the accusation during the fifth inning of New York's 12-4 victory at Yankee Stadium.
"I certainly didn't appreciate it that much, but that's not an excuse," said Jones, who was at second when Torrealba began yelling at him while the catcher was having a conference at the pitcher's mound. "When (their pitcher) is leaving pitches over the plate, and they're getting hit, they're just trying to make excuses. Those things happen.
"He's just trying to make excuses (because they're) getting their butts kicked."
Torrealba said he was not making excuses, but that he noticed something and so did the middle infielders.
"We could all be wrong, but we could all be right, so I decided to say something," Torrealba said. "I don't take it personally. I don't take any credit away from them. I don't even think they needed to do that. We were making a lot of bad pitches, and they hit a lot of mistakes."
Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira said Torrealba also made similar accusations toward him on Tuesday night.
"He said something to me two nights ago," Teixeira said, "but there's really no reason to get into it because I didn't have anything. Guys get paranoid. I told him I really don't know what you're talking about and that was it."
