SAN FRANCISCO -- Los Angeles closer Eric Gagne was ejected in the fifth inning of the Dodgers' game against the Giants on Wednesday night -- even though he's on the disabled list.
Gagne apparently had been heckling home plate umpire Bill Hohn from the Dodgers' dugout about balls and strikes. A moment after Odalis Perez's low pitch to Deivi Cruz was called a ball, Hohn pointed at the dugout and ejected Gagne.
Manager Jim Tracy briefly left the dugout to argue with Hohn, but Gagne eventually went to the clubhouse.
Gagne, one of baseball's most dominant closers, won the NL Cy Young award in 2003. He agreed to a two-year, $19 million contract last winter, but went on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right elbow ligament on Saturday.

Not funny! I lost 2 players in 1 game.
