VIDEO: Bryce Harper and Gabe Kapler Ejected vs Red Sox for Arguing Balls and Strikes

The Philadelphia Phillies don't seem to be particularly fond of the strike zone established by umpire Gabe Morales in their Sunday afternoon game against the Boston Red Sox. Bryce Harper was given the hook for arguing balls and strikes, and Phillies manager Gabe Kapler was then sent packing himself after giving Morales more than just a mouthful at home plate.

They both got their money's worth. And it isn't the first time that either of them have gotten ejected this year, either.

For Harper, it was his second ejection of the year and the 13th of his career. As for Kapler, it was the fourth time he was forced out of the game and the first time he was ejected for arguing balls and strikes since he had a run-in with Joe West.

It's especially brutal that they lost both of them mid-way through the game. It'll be tough to stage a comeback against Boston without either of them-- especially given how hard Christian Vazquez is raking.
