SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke, usually as mild mannered as they get, was thrown out of Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks after arguing a call at home plate in the ninth inning.

Plate umpire Chris Guccione ruled that Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado missed the tag on Shelley Duncan as he slid headfirst for one of Arizona's three ninth-inning runs. Roenicke said he thought the runner left the basepath and should have been called out.

As Roenicke was leaving the area, second base umpire Bill Miller came in and another argument ensued before Miller ejected Roenicke from the game.

Milwaukee starter Yovani Gallardo and Arizona's Trevor Cahill had nearly identical five-inning outings.

Gallardo allowed three runs and seven hits. Cahill gave up three runs, two earned, and seven hits.
