WASHINGTON --What started as a pitcher's duel turned into dual bullpen fiascos for the Nationals and Mets before including the latest entry in the growing lore of Bryce Harper. The 19-year-old Harper's hustling triple drove home the tying run in the 10th inning and Ryan Zimmerman eventually scored the game-winner on a wild pitch in the same inning as Washington Nationals rallied twice after blowing a ninth-inning lead for a 5-4 win over the New York Mets on Tuesday night. "You live for those kinds of games. Playing at a young age, you always dream about playing in a close game like that," said Harper. "You're just trying to battle to the end with all your guys and that's what our team does." This specific game zipped along over the first eight innings before the final two took nearly as long to complete. Both teams lost leads in the ninth inning and traded advantages in the final frame as the running time crawled past the three-hour mark....

Here's video (via MLB.com) of Bryce Harper's fantastic game-ending catch/collision with Steve Lombardozzi to end a 4-0 Nats win that turned into a nailbiter in the 9th. Pretty eventful day for Harper in Miami, eh?

Those who were expecting nonstop quotes mixed in with a solid amount of controversy once Bryce Harper got called up to the big leagues have been extremely disappointed. Harper has said and done all the right things since joining the Nationals. That is, if you ask anyone besides Ozzie Guillen. The Marlins manager was furious with Harper on Sunday but would not say what had him so...
NICE GESTURE, BRO
To lighten the mood after Ozzie Guillen called Bryce Harper "unprofessional," the Nationals sent the Marlins skipper a bat autographed by Harper.
Just a few short days after appearing above Bryce Harper's upper lip (again), Bryce Harper's mustache is gone. There's Harper above as seen on TV in his first AB Monday night. Maybe it was just pine tar? Good news: Harper didn't get beaned by Carlos Zambrano in his first AB. It helps that Zambrano couldn't really find the strike zone (Harper walked on five...
MASN's Kristina Akra talked to Bryce Harper after last night's walkoff thriller (video of the interview here); asked if Harper thought about scoring on his game-tying triple in the 10th after the ball rolled to the Mets dugout.
Akra: "As you see the ball rolling towards the dugout, how bad did you want to jump up and go home."Harper: "I was tryin...
I want to hate Bryce Harper and Mike Trout. Maybe if they played for the Tigers I’d love them but two guys that young, that talented and that successful who aren’t on my team? Honestly, I really want to dislike them.
With Trout it’s a little harder because somehow he comes across as a good guy and great teammate despite only being 20 years old. Harper, it’s a little...
Bryce Harper has taken the Major League by storm and has created a storm of his own with Miami Marlin manager Ozzie Guillen.

Ozzie strikes again — Over the weekend, there was an incident between Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper and Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen — Ozzie felt like the Nationals phenom was showing him up. “I was just telling him how cute he was,” Guillen said, refusing to divulge details. “Something happened there the inning before...
Remember, kids, you don’t want to forget to fill your ESPN cutlines before going live with graphics because there is a guy out there waiting to bust your ass for the error. Next thing you know it’s on Twitter & dorky Internet guys are LOLing at you. In other sports news, the halo on a Joe Paterno mural in State College has been modified. The halo has been painted over! Meanwhile...
We could separate outfielders into separate positions, but quite frankly not every position has enough players to make the list of five. When we make it ten outfielders for the three position we really see a compelling list of outfielders. The best two young players in the game happen to be in the outfield. They are both center fielders, so center field is obviously...
