Upton ejected in ninth

CF B.J. Upton was ejected in the ninth inning of Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Angels.

Upton was ejected by home plate umpire Mark Wegner after he flied out to center. Upton appeared to take issue with a couple strike calls in his at-bat,in which two Brian Fuentes inside pitches were called for strikes.

A visibly upset Upton tried to approach Wegner after flying out, and had to get held back a bit by manager Joe Maddon, before walking back into the dugout.

It was the first ejection of Upton's season.

More to come
