Dodgers' Kemp, Mattingly ejected

Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp and manager Don Mattingly were ejected from Thursday's contest with the Pittsburgh Pirates in the second inning.

With Andre Ethier at the plate, Kemp began barking at home plate umpire Angel Campos from the dugout before Campos tossed him for arguing balls and strikes. Kemp sprang from the dugout and had to be restrained by teammates before eventually leaving the game.

Mattingly then continued the argument with Campos before first base umpire Tim Tschida tossed the Dodgers' skipper as well.

Kemp and Mattingly both appeared to make contact with members of the umpiring crew during the altercation, which could result in discipline from the commissioner's office.
