Philadelphia Phillies slugger Kyle Schwarber holds the early title for "ejection of the year" in Major League Baseball.

Sunday night, the Phillies slugger was enraged when home plate umpire Angel Hernandez called him out on a pitch outside.

Schwarber was called out on strikes on a full count with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning and the Phillies trailing, 1-0.

The call was a bad one and Schwarber was not happy.

It's been a rough game for Hernandez, who is often the most-criticized umpire in baseball.

The Phillies ended up losing to the Brewers, 1-0, on Sunday evening. Philadelphia, which spent big money this offseason to beef up its roster, is now 6-10 on the season.
