MLB Ejection 032 - Brian Knight (1; Bryce Harper)

HP Umpire Brian Knight ejected Nationals RF Bryce Harper for arguing a strike three call in the bottom of the 9th inning of the Tigers-Nationals game. With none out and none on, Nationals batter Danny Espinosa took a 3-2 slider from Tigers pitcher Mark Lowe for a called third strike. Replays indicate the pitch was located over the heart of home plate and diaphragm high (px -.025, pz 3.415 [sz_top 3.630]), the call was correct.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 4-4. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 5-4.
