Burnett, who called a players meeting before Wednesday's game, was most angry after the Dodgers took their only lead in the fourth when Ramirez hit a two-run homer.
As Ramirez rounded second base during his home-run trot, he circled his eyes with his fingers as he turned in the direction of Burnett. The gesture is a trademark of Ramirez's.
When Ramirez struck out swinging to end the sixth, Burnett screamed at him as he walked off the mound. Ramirez was reprimanded by Campos for throwing his bat, and the two had a somewhat-heated discussion.
That wasn't close to being the most contentious moment of the game.
Kemp struck out swinging to end the first, although a 1-0 pitch during the at-bat was a called strike. It wasn't until Andre Ethier led off the next inning that Kemp was ejected by Campos while in the dugout. By that point, Jones had homered to give the Pirates a 3-0 lead.
Oddly, Kemp was tossed after a pitch that was called a ball.
Kemp's ejection angered Mattingly, who sprinted out to Campos. Kemp wasn't far behind, and needed to be restrained, at different times, by Mattingly, teammate Shane Victorino, bench coach Trey Hillman and other umpires. He bumped into an umpire at least once.
After a few minutes of arguing, Mattingly was ejected by crew chief Tim Tschida. Mattingly stayed on the field for several more minutes of animated discussion before an umpire summoned Hillman to come out to retrieve Mattingly.
When play resumed, Ethier grounded out, but Loney homered two batters later. It was his first home run since May 21 and third of the season.
Blanton (8-11) fell to 0-2 since being acquired in a trade from Philadelphia. Blanton gave up eight runs, seven hits and a season-high four walks in 4 1-3 innings.
