Brewers LF Braun ejected for helmet slam

BY foxsports • May 24, 2011

Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun was ejected in the third inning of Milwaukee's game with the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night after slamming his helmet in frustration over a call at first base.

Braun believed he had beat out an infield single, just ahead of second baseman Danny Espinosa's throw to first. He even made the safe sign as he touched the bag.

First base umpire Adrian Johnson didn't see the play that way and called Braun out.

Braun slammed his helmet with two hands and was immediately ejected.

Braun came in on a career-high 13-game hitting streak. He finished 0 for 2, dropping his average to .299.
