The first baseman was tossed from the game in the bottom of the third inning on September 28 after Hernandez determined he’d gone around on a check swing and called him out on strikes. Harper stormed over to Hernandez and argued on the field before he was ejected from the game. He threw hit batting helmet to a young a fan in the crowd before going into the dugout. It was his fourth ejection this season. Harper later defended his actions and complained about Hernandez’s call during an interview after the game. “It’s every year, it’s the same story, the same thing,” he said.
