The Nats took care of business today, sweeping the Marlins on the strength of yet another strong start, scoreless relief and the longball. That’s three wins in a row to start the season, and, thankfully, they didn’t lose baseball’s most exciting player to a broken jaw either (via DC Sports Nexus):
Now, I’m not sure how bad that looks to you, because the GIF is clipped pretty short and the quality’s not so good. But that was Harper coming in full speed and flying into home, trying to score from first on a double. That was also Miami catcher Rob Brantly, leaning in with a firm elbow to the face.
Harper did score, by the way, and walked it off. Somehow.
