Bryce Harper runs on the field to celebrate walk-off and cuss at the umpire

Bryce Harper had an eventful bottom of the ninth on Monday, and he didn't even pick up a bat. The sequence ended with Harper cussing out an umpire, but it took a lot to get there.

It all started when Danny Espinosa was called out on strikes by home plate umpire Brian Knight. Harper was in the dugout at the time and apparently did not like the call. Knight did not like Harper's opinion of the call and ejected him. Harper was not pleased.

Ejected players are sent back to the clubhouse, but before Harper could get very far, the game ended when Clint Robinson hit a walk-off home run two pitches later. Harper joined his teammates celebrating on the field and made sure Knight knew what he thought about being ejected.

The cameras caught a pretty clear "fuck you" from Harper, but he wasn't worried.
