MILWAUKEE -- Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier was ejected in the top of the sixth inning of Thursday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers for arguing with home plate umpire Adrian Anderson.

Ethier struck out looking leading off the sixth inning and argued the call with Anderson. Ethier thought the pitch was low and had a few words for the ump before returning to the dugout. One out later Anderson had enough of Ethier's continuing comments and tossed him.

Ethier raced out of the dugout, but Dodgers manager Joe Torre and teammate James Loney got between him and Anderson, who did little but jaw at each other.

Ethier was replaced in right field by Reed Johnson.
