Yasiel Puig ejected after arguing called third strike (Video)

Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig was ejected in the third inning of Saturday night's game against San Diego for arguing a called third strike with home plate umpire David Rackley.

Puig took the 0-2 fastball at the knees on the inside corner from Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy. After Rackley called strike three, Puig stood angrily at home plate, saying a few words and making some gestures. Rackley tried to walk away, but when Puig refused to head back to the dugout and continued to argue, Rackley tossed him.

Rackley is in his first year in the major leagues, but he seemed to handle this situation with Puig the right way.
