Yasmani Grandal was ejected from Thursday's game against the Cardinals for arguing balls and strikes.

Grandal came in as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning and struck out in his only trip to the plate.

Grandal's ejection came one batter after Adrian Gonzalez was tossed for arguing another suspicious called strike.

Grandal saw his nine-game hitting streak snapped with a pinch-hit strikeout on Tuesday, but was back at it once more in Wednesday's game, swatting a two-run double to right with two outs against Johnny Cueto (on a very good pitch, at that) in the first inning. Over his last 10 games, Grandal has raised his season-long triple-slash from .214/.302/.369 to .287/.357/.478.
