WASHINGTON -- Moments after Bryce Harper was ejected from the dugout, pinch hitter Clint Robinson hit a game-ending homer to give the Washington Nationals a 5-4 comeback victory over the Detroit Tigers on Monday night.
As he joined his teammates in racing to the plate to greet Robinson for a celebration, Harper yelled something in the direction of umpire Brian Knight.
Knight pointed toward the dugout and signaled Harper's ejection after the batter before Robinson, Danny Espinosa, was called out on strikes.
