Stephen Strasburg was ejected during Thursday's Washington Nationals-New York Mets game for arguing from the stands at Citi Field.

Strasburg was sitting in Section 121 so that he could socially distance. He wasn't pitching as he's scheduled to start on Friday.

He was unhappy with the strike zone of plate umpire Carlos Torres after Austin Voth's 2-2 pitch to Pete Alonso on the outside corner was ruled a ball.

Someone was heard yelling: "You're [expletive] brutal" shortly before television cameras captured Strasburg doffing his cap as he walked up the staircase on his way out of the park.
