Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper, manager Matt Williams ejected vs. Yankees
Thursday May 21st, 2015

Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper and manager Matt Williams were both ejected from Wednesday night's 3-2 win over the Yankees at Nationals Park.

The pair were ejected for arguing balls and strikes after Harper took a called strike to start an at-bat in the third inning. Home plate umpire Marvin Hudson, who did the tossing, told Harper to get back in the batter's box as the outfielder expressed his disapproval with the call.

It is the second time in eight days that Harper and Williams were both ejected from a game. They were ejected from last Wednesday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks for arguing a checked swing. 

Harper has now been ejected five times in his career.

Harper is hitting .333 with 15 home runs, 38 RBIs and a .472 on-base percentage this season.
