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."
