After kicking off their season with a series win against the Oakland Athletics, the Phillies have failed to win a single series since then. The Phillies have managed to win only six games out of 16 games they have played this season. Due to a controversial decision against the Brewers on Sunday, they lost another series.

The incident occurred in the ninth inning of the game when the Phillies outfielder Kyle Schwarber was batting at the plate. Things got heated between Schwarber and the home plate umpire Angel Hernandez. 

Schwarber argued with Hernandez for calling a third strike in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Brewers’ ace Josh Hader. The Phillies star seemed frustrated by Hernandez’s call at the plate. Schwarber could not control himself and slammed his bat on the ground and said a few things to the umpire.
