LOS ANGELES (AP) -Dodgers third baseman Nomar Garciaparra was ejected for arguing a called third strike in the fourth inning of Monday night's game against the Houston Astros.
Garciaparra took a called third strike at the knees to end the inning and began arguing with home plate umpire Tom Hallion.
Dodgers manager Grady Little came on the field to talk to Hallion, while first base coach Mariano Duncan wrapped his arms around Garciaparra and attempted to back him toward the dugout.
Garciaparra continued shouting and pointed his bat at the umpire while taking a few steps toward Hallion, who ejected him.
He was replaced by Shea Hillenbrand, who was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas earlier Monday.
Garciaparra went 4-for-15 on the Dodgers' just completed road trip.
