Bryce Harper ejected for arguing balls and strikes from dugout vs Mets

Bryce Harper ejected in 4th inning vs Mets

Philadelphia Phillies superstar Bryce Harper was ejected from Monday night's game against the New York Mets for arguing balls and strikes with the home plate umpire from the dugout.

It happened in the fourth inning after Harper struck out looking on a pitch after having struck out swinging in the first inning. Harper wasn't happy and had a brief comment or two as he walked to the dugout. However, it wasn't until a few batters later when the home plate umpire turned to the Phillies dugout and tossed Harper.

Harper and manager Gabe Kapler were understandably not happy and argued with the home plate umpire to no avail.

The Phillies could have used more of Harper's offense in the game, as they only managed one run in a 5-1 loss to the Mets.
