Ramirez homers, gets tossed in Dodgers' 7-2 win

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Manny Ramirez hit his 17th home run of the season before being ejected in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 7-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks yesterday.

Ramirez hit a solo homer in a three-run second inning off right-hander Max Scherzer but was thrown out for flinging his bat and helmet to the ground near home plate after striking out to end the third inning.

Ronnie Belliard and James Loney also had bases-empty homers for the Dodgers, who have won all three starts Vicente Padilla has made since joining the rotation Aug. 27.

Belliard was acquired from Washington on Aug. 30. He had three hits and two RBIs, finishing a triple short of the cycle.
