Just another day at the office for Bryce Harper on Saturday: 3-for-3, 2 home runs, 3 RBI, including that monster go-ahead home run in the eighth to bail out the Nationals against the Mets. According to hittracker, the ball travelled 433 feet. Here's Davey:
"Harper was amazing today. He crushed a couple balls. What a day he had. That last one he hit off (Mets left-hander Josh Edgin), that was sky high and still got out of here." (Davey Johnson, via Washington Times, 4/21/2013)
Not too shabby a start to the season for Harper: .371/.426/.758 slash line with 7 HR and 14 RBI through 16 games.
Maybe next time Harper will ding one off that bridge:
