JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper has been ejected from a spring training game against St. Louis after being called out at first base.

Harper led off the fourth inning Wednesday with a slow roller that second baseman Mark Ellis barehanded and flipped to first. The throw appeared to beat Harper and umpire Jeff Gosney called him out.

The 21-year-old Harper kept his head down, screaming his displeasure as he passed Gosney on his way to the third-base dugout. Gosney threw out Harper, who didn't seem to initially realize he'd been ejected.

Harper turned in apparent disbelief to argue with Gosney, and Nationals manager Matt Williams joined in.

The game was delayed a few moments while Harper gathered his belongings and walked to the visiting clubhouse beyond the left-field wall.

Fans asked for autographs as Harper passed the corner of the left-field bleachers about 10 feet from the foul line.
