Much has been, and much will be, written about Bryce Harper and his tendency to overreact to events that happened on the field. And on Monday night, the Philadelphia Phillies outfielder subjected himself for more of it when he was tossed in what became a loss. The 5-1 loss in New York to the Mets keeps up a negative spiral for the struggling Phillies, who have four of their last five games.
He was thrown out, well after it must be said, he was called out on strikes. You just can’t do it, kids, and you had better believe that his teammates- and all of the media- will be telling him today. Steven Matz pitched six innings and only gave up one run and Pete Alonso contributed with two RBIs for the Mets in the victory.
