SAN DIEGO (AP) -Arizona Diamondbacks manager Bob Melvin was ejected from Tuesday night's game against San Diego for arguing a call at first base in the sixth inning.
With runners on first and second, none out and the Padres leading 4-3, Brandon Webb fielded Kevin Kouzmanoff's bunt and started to go to third but realized he wouldn't get Adrian Gonzalez. Webb spun and threw to first, and Kouzmanoff was ruled safe by first base umpire Lance Barksdale.
Melvin came out to argue and was tossed by Barksdale.
