Umpire Laz Diaz just wanted to go home.
At least that's what we're going to assume after what transpired at the end of the A's-Blue Jays game on Friday night at the Coliseum.
With two outs in the bottom of the ninth and Toronto leading 5-1, Diaz rung up A's center fielder Ramon Laureano on a high strike three call to end the game.

As you can see from the graphic on the screen during the NBC Sports California broadcast, Diaz got the call wrong.
Diaz walked away and started to head for the clubhouse. When Laureano started yelling at him, Diaz got demonstrative and yelled back. He wasn't about to back down.
A's first base coach Al Pedrique and outfielder Chad Pinder had to hold Laureano back.

Diaz was wrong on multiple instances here. The pitch was a ball, and he should have just walked away from Laureano.
Nobody is tuning in for the #UmpShow, bro.
