Arizona Diamondbacks star Madison Bumgarner was ejected from Wednesday morning against the Miami Marlins right after mandatory foreign substance testing.
Bumgarner allowed a home run to Marlins third baseman Jon Berti, and as he returned to the dugout, he appeared to chirp toward the umpires. He didn’t stop talking when he had his fingers checked for a foreign substance, and when the check was over, referee Dan Bellino threw him out.

The veteran pitcher wasn’t happy after being thrown and getting into the umpire’s face. Bumgarner’s teammates and coaches had to restrain the pitcher.
It was not exactly clear what was said between Bumgarner and the referee.
