Harper, for his part, voted “just off.” You can tell, because his response to home plate umpire Mike Winters’ strike-three call was to yell and throw his helmet:
Predictably, Harper was tossed for his acts. He lucked out in a sense, since his helmet easily could’ve ricocheted and struck Winters, which would’ve prompted a suspension.
You might wonder if Nationals manager Dusty Baker had a problem with his superstar getting himself ejected in a close game. The answer? Nope:
Dusty on Harper: “These things happen…especially this time of year, tempers are short.”

The Rockies won the game 9-4 in the 11th, so Harper’s fiery display didn’t rally the troops. At least the home crowd got a good view of Harper’s hair?
