An argumentative card

On both the front and back of his 1995 Collectors Choice SE card, Wilson Alvarez is in a heated argument with umpire Rocky Roe.

What is the argument about? I believe it is from this game, July 24, 1994 in Cleveland. In the fifth inning of Chicago's eventual 4-2 victory, Paul Sorrento scored from first on an error by right fielder Warren Newson. According to the snippet of a pay-per-view Chicago Tribune article I can see through Google, "Fernandez snatched the rebound and held the runners at second and third, but umpire Rocky Roe ruled the ball had gone out of play and waved Sorrento around." This would seem to be what the argument was about.
