Ramon Laureano was ejected from Wednesday night’s Oakland A’s-Boston Red Sox game after becoming upset with a bad call.
Laureano was batting in the top of the third inning with a runner on first, two outs and the game tied at one. Eduardo Rodriguez had a 1-2 count and threw a fastball inside on Laureano. Home plate umpire Ryan Wills called it a strike to end the half-inning even though the ball was very inside.

Laureano was tossed from the game after understandably getting upset with the call. However, his mini-meltdown went too far and cost him his ability to remain in the game.
You can see just how badly the pitch missed the zone:
Yeah, I would be upset too if I got called out on that pitch.
