Sveum ejected for first time as manager
CHICAGO -- Cubs manager Dale Sveum was ejected for the first time in his managerial career during the ninth inning of his team's 5-4 win against the Dodgers on Friday at Wrigley Field.

With two outs in the top of the ninth, Cubs right-hander Rafael Dolis' 2-2 fastball to Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis was inside, and home-plate umpire Marty Foster signaled the ball hit Ellis and awarded him first base.

Sveum came out of the dugout to talk to Foster, but was ejected after a short conversation.

"Just asking questions," Sveum said of the talk. "Asked the wrong one."
