Lorenzo Cain was ejected during the seventh inning of a game between the Kansas City Royals and the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday, July 8, 2017. Following the game, this is how he described his interaction with umpire Bill Miller.

There were a few moments in the Royals’ 4-3 loss to the Dodgers on Saturday night that tipped the scales in LA’s favor.

One came in the seventh inning when the score was tied 3-3. The Royals had the bases loaded with one out, but center fielder Lorenzo Cain struck out on a 2-2 pitch that appeared to be out of the zone. The Royals ended up not scoring in the inning.

When Cain went to take his position in the bottom of the frame, he voiced his displeasure with home-plate umpire Bill Miller, who ejected Cain.

Take a look at the pitch and the ejection:

This graphic shows that Cain may have been right to be upset.
