Sveum ejected for arguing call at first base
CHICAGO -- Cubs manager Dale Sveum was ejected at the end of the seventh inning Saturday by umpire Mike Winters for arguing a close play at first base.

The Cubs had taken a 3-2 lead in the seventh and the bases were loaded with two outs when Starlin Castro hit a ball to Cardinals shortstop Daniel Descalso. Castro appeared to beat the throw by a step, but Winters called him out, which prompted Sveum to sprint across the field.

After a brief argument, Sveum was then tossed for the third time this season.
