ST. PETERSBURG, Florida — Derek Jeter was hit on the arm by a Steve Geltz pitch in the eighth inning of a 6-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday night, the fifth time a New York Yankees batter has been hit by a Rays pitcher in the past week.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi came out of the dugout and was ejected after New York's captain was hit.

New York's David Phelps was ejected by plate umpire Rob Drake in the bottom half after throwing a tight pitch to Kevin Kiermaier. Both dugouts and bullpens emptied, but little occured except for a couple players being restrained by teammates or coaches. Yankees coach Tony Pena also was ejected during the game.

Jeter and Chase Headley have been hit twice each since Sept. 9 and Brian McCann once. Headley was struck by Jake McGee on a chin last Thursday.
