Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper appeared to curse at home plate umpire Brian Knight after Clint Robinson’s walk-off home run in Monday night’s win over the Tigers. 

Minutes earlier, Washington infielder Danny Espinosa struck out looking and Harper was ejected for arguing from the dugout. Robinson was the next batter and hit a walk-off homer to rightfield. 

As the players celebrated around home plate, Harper pointed his finger at Knight and appeared to curse at him.
