Burnett said something and motioned to home plate umpire Chris Guccione, who ejected him.
Sandberg came out and heatedly argued with Guccione near home plate. He was soon ejected as well.
Burnett had issued two walks in the inning, including one to opposing pitcher Jordan Zimmermann. He allowed five runs, one earned, and three hits in 1 2-3 innings.
Burnett was replaced by Phillippe Aumont.
Washington led 5-0 after two innings.
