Bryce Harper launched home runs number 6 and 7 on Saturday afternoon.
On Saturday afternoon at Citi Field, the Nationals needed a little something extra to slip by the Mets. Gio Gonzalez imploded, Ryan Zimmerman headed to the disabled list, and Bryce Harper hit two home runs, the second being a mammoth shot that won the game for the Nationals 7-6 (and won us yet another parlay bet).
The first one comes off poor Jeremy Hefner. We’ve got a new nickname for Hefner. We’re going to start calling him “The Organ Donor” because all the guy does is give away pieces of himself – vital organs, one by one every time he makes a start.
We’ve covered this before, but Bryce Harper has really taken a liking to Jeremy Hefner in his short time in the big leagues. The last time they crossed paths, Harper hit a 434-foot shot.
This one wasn’t quite as far (423 feet is all), but it certainly got out just as quickly. And oh look, there goes Hefner’s liver landing in the bullpen in right center!
