SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Arizona Diamondbacks slugger Justin Upton has been ejected from his team’s key series finale with the San Francisco Giants for arguing a called third strike.

Upton jumped into the air Sunday after being called out on strikes against Ryan Vogelsong for the first out of the fourth with Aaron Hill aboard on a leadoff single. Upton jawed with plate umpire Brian Knight and was tossed. He had to be held back by manager Kirk Gibson and then first base coach Eric Young.

It’s the first ejection of the year for Upton, who drew a first-inning walk.
