Video: Kyle Schwarber's Insane Ejection Is Going Viral

Kyle Schwarber on the field

Kyle Schwarber certainly got his money's worth with his ejection from tonight's Sunday Night Baseball game on ESPN.

The Philadelphia Phillies slugger was called out on strikes following a bad call by home plate umpire Angel Hernandez.

Hernandez has been having a rough game behind the plate, with several questionable strike and ball calls. Schwarber had enough of it following his strike three call in the bottom of the ninth inning.

The Phillies were trailing the Brewers, 1-0, in teh bottom of the ninth inning with one out when Schwarber was called out on strikes. It was a 3-2 count, meaning Schwarber would've walked if the pitch was called a ball (and it should've been). Fans and players have been upset with several of Hernandez's calls during the Sunday Night Baseball game on ESPN.

The Phillies ended up losing to the Brewers, 1-0, on Sunday night. Philadelphia is now 6-10 on the season.
