MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Chicago Cubs manager Mike Quade was ejected on Sunday for arguing after third baseman Aramis Ramirez took a called third strike against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Ramirez believed he had walked on Zack Greinke's low pitch on the corner, but home plate umpire Bill Miller called him out to end the first inning.

Ramirez spent an extended amount of time discussing the call with Miller and Quade came out to get his player back to the dugout. As both began walking away, Miller ejected Quade, who then turned back around and picked the argument back up before finally leaving.

It was Quade's sixth ejection this year.
