David Ortiz was ejected from the Orioles-Red Sox game in the fifth inning on Sunday for arguing balls and strikes.

Third base umpire Jerry Meals called a checked swing a strike and Ortiz flung his bat down at the plate.

Home plate umpire John Tumpane ejected him a few seconds later.

Ortiz continued to rage until manager John Farrell pushed him away.

He then flung his bat down again and left a trail of equipment on his way back to the dugout.

Daniel Nava came in for Ortiz and grounded to shortstop.

It was the first ejection of the season for Ortiz.
