Bochy gets tossed arguing call at first

PHOENIX -- Giants manager Bruce Bochy was ejected from Monday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks for excessive arguing with first-base umpire Bill Miller.

Miller called Hunter Pence out at first on the back end of an inning-ending double play in the top of the fifth, prompting Bochy's ire. Television replays indicated that Pence was safe.

"That's why I was out there," Bochy said. "I didn't agree with the call."

It was Bochy's first ejection of the season and 58th of his managerial career.
