Bryce Harper ejected early in St. Louis after strikeout originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia
ST. LOUIS — Bryce Harper was ejected after ending the top of the third inning with a strikeout Friday night at Busch Stadium.
Harper struck out swinging at a curveball and flung his bat toward the Phillies‘ dugout in frustration. The prior pitch was a 92 mph fastball that was high and out of the zone but called a strike. He gave home plate umpire Alex Tosi an earful after being tossed and continued arguing as first base coach Paco Figueroa tried to steer him back toward the dugout.
A half-hour earlier, Harper drove in the Phillies’ first run with an RBI groundout. Nick Castellanos followed two batters later with a three-run homer that staked Aaron Nola and the Phils to an early four-run lead.
