Kyle Schwarber has had a busy day of homering, bunting, and hugging Javy Baez, but it was Baez who had to do some hugging to save his friend from perhaps getting more of a punishment than just getting booted from today’s game.
Which is to say, Schwarber was just booted from the game after disputing a (horrible) third strike call. Quick freaking ejection trigger:

Schwarber, who has never been ejected before, was obviously right about the ridiculous call, and lingered at the plate. But that was a really quick toss when it wasn’t like Schwarber was turning to get in the ump’s face. He said a word or two, got the boot. Umpshow.
