In what's turning out to be a bad day for MLB umpires, Bill Miller—behind the plate for tonight's Rays-at-Jays matchup in Toronto—suffered the wrath of Brett Lawrie's helmet after the Blue Jays third baseman took issue with Miller's strike zone.


Upon departing the field, the assault on Bill Miller continued. Blue Jays fans rained debris upon the umpires as they attempted to exit, with one individual in particular scoring a direct hit with the remnants of what we're told is a beer. Cheer up, Bill Miller!
