Madison Bumgarner ejected for first time in his career

Unhappy with home plate umpire Jeremie Rehak’s strike zone, Giants starter Madison Bumgarner had some words on his way back to the dugout after being taken out of the game in the sixth inning. That earned Bumgarner his first career ejection, as John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle notes.

Bumgarner yielded four runs on six hits and a walk with three strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings. It’s only the second start of the year for the lefty, who debuted last Tuesday after working his way back from a fractured left pinkie finger.
