MLB Ejections 054-055 - Brian Gorman (1-2; WAS-SF Fight)

HP Umpire Brian Gorman ejected Giants P Hunter Strickland and Nationals RF Bryce Harper (Throwing At and Fighting) in the top of the 8th inning of the Nationals-Giants game. With two out and none on, Harper took a first-pitch fastball from Strickland for a hit-by-pitch, resulting in a bench-clearing incident. Warnings had not previously been issued; there had been one hit batsman earlier in the contest (SF's Christian Arroyo, by WAS's Tanner Roark), the call was irrecusable. At the time of the ejection, the Nationals were leading, 2-0. The Nationals ultimately won the contest, 3-0.

This is Brian Gorman (9)'s first, second ejection of the 2017 MLB regular season.
Brian Gorman now has 5 points in the UEFL Standings (1 Previous + 2*[2 MLB + 0 Irrecusable] = 5).
