BOSTON (AP) -- New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi says he doesn't expect to be fined for pushing a television camera to keep it from aiming into the tunnel between the team's dugout and clubhouse.

Girardi pushed the camera at the corner of his dugout after pitcher Michael Pineda was ejected in the second inning for having pine tar on the right side of his neck. The Boston Red Sox went on to win 5-1 on Wednesday night.

Girardi says cameras are not permitted to show scenes in the tunnel. And he says he'll have "a real problem" if he is fined. "I didn't do anything to hurt the camera."

ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz says the network plans to review the situation with Major League Baseball.
