Interesting spot to get yourself run... Up by 3 in the ninth... Tempers flair during day games no doubt about it!

I love the Padre announcers "He walked away. said something and that's ok"

Anonymous, unfortunately we don't have video of this ejection. At the 14 minute mark of the condensed game you can see Headley slam his bat down after making the 2nd out though. Not as to the strike call in question or the actual ejection though.
