ANAHEIM -- A's manager Bob Melvin was ejected in the middle of the Angels' six-run second inning in Sunday's series finale.

Melvin presumably was none too happy with plate umpire Gerry Davis' strike zone and let it be known after starter Scott Kazmir walked his third batter of the inning and was removed in favor of righty Dan Otero.

Kazmir was responsible for all six runs on what began as yet another frustrating day for the slumping A's, who were trying to avoid a four-game sweep at the hands of the first-place Angels.

It was Melvin's third ejection of the season.
