Nationals OF Harper ejected

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Washington Nationals superstar outfielder Bryce Harper may be out of their lineup for at least a game — or possibly longer after the incident that happened on Monday. He was ejected from the game with the San Francisco Giants after charging the mound and throwing punches.

This caused a benches-clearing brawl between the two teams. Also, Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland, who hit him, also got a clear punch on Harper right in the face.

Strickland gave up two home runs to Harper in two career at-bats, which both came during the 2014 National League Divisional Series. This was the first-time they faced each other since that time.

One home run came on October 3, 2014 and the other was on October 7, 2014. Strickland appeared to be mad when Harper looked at the second home run longer, in his opinion.

His first pitch hit Harper in the hip, which Harper was not pleased about. After barking at the pitcher, he pointed at him with his bat, then charged the mound. He also threw his helmet before the two threw some wild punches at each other.

Strickland, who has only pitched rarely for the Giants and been a career minor-leaguer, was also ejected.
