CHICAGO (AP) Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon has been ejected from Tuesday's game against the Cincinnati Reds.

The ejection was the second this season for Maddon, who got tossed with David Ross batting in the second inning. The veteran started heading toward first after taking a 3-0 pitch that he thought was ball four, only to have it called a strike by plate umpire Jerry Meals.

Maddon got tossed by Meals as he protested from the dugout, then came out for a spirited argument that lasted a few more minutes.

The Cubs were trailing 4-0.
