Clearly not pleased with A-Rod's return to Fenway Park, Boston pitcher Ryan Dempster threw a pair of balls at Rodriguez, connecting with the second. Irate that Dempsey didn't get tossed, Yankees manager Joe Girardi charged home plate umpire Brian O'Nora, earning a trip to the showers for himself.

UPDATE: Ryan Dempster was given a five-game suspension and undisclosed fine for throwing at Alex Rodriguez on Sunday night. (NBC Sports)
