Soon after, manager Dave Martinez came running on the field and was ejected.
The call came from umpire Marty Foster and was the last out in the bottom of the third for Washington.
After the ejection, Martinez threw his hat and kicked the dirt of the batter's box. It was his first career ejection.
The two pitches Rendon struck out on appeared to be borderline of the strike zone.
After the game, Rendon had this to say about the ejection.
Crew chief Joe West had gave this statement on the ejection.
According to MLB.com's Jamal Collier, the Nationals' Bryce Harper said the ejection was, "Awesome...He’s a manager that you want to fight for, you want to win for."
