MILWAUKEE (AP) - Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki was ejected in the eighth inning of Friday night’s game with the Milwaukee Brewers for arguing balls and strikes with umpire Rob Drake.

Tulowitzki took a called strike three and didn’t move out of the batter’s box, arguing with Drake about the call as Jason Giambi came up and tried to push him back toward Colorado’s dugout.

Manager Jim Tracy then got in between Tulowitzki and tried guiding him back to safety, but Tulowitzki turned around to say one more thing, prompting Drake to eject him.

Tracy briefly protested with Drake, but stayed in the game.
