MLB Ejection 025 - Andy Fletcher (1; Bryce Harper)

1B Umpire Andy Fletcher ejected Phillies bench player Bryce Harper (out of base path call by 2B Umpire Jose Navas; QOCN) in the bottom of the 7th inning of the #Mets-#Phillies game. With one out and one on (R1), Phillies batter Matt Joyce hit a ground ball to Mets second baseman Jeff McNeil, who threw to shortstop Francisco Lindor, to first baseman Pete Alonso, Phillies baserunner R1 Andrew McCutchen ruled out for running more than three feet away from his base path to avoid a tag and Phillies batter-runner Joyce ruled out upon Replay Review as the result of a challenge by Mets manager Luis Rojas. Replays indicate McCutchen did not deviate from his base path to avoid a tag in contravention of Official Baseball Rule 5.09(b)(1), the call was incorrect.* At the time of the ejection, the game was tied, 4-4. The Mets ultimately won the contest, 5-4.
