Seasons ago, Danny Haren and Bryce Harper were teammates. It was back in the 2013 season when Davey Johnson treated Haren like he was Gomer Pyle in the team barracks.
Haren has been in a few different clubhouses since that season, and the unlikely paths of Harper and Haren crossed for the first time. The ball landed in the bullpen for a 1-0 Washington lead, and the 60th home run of Harper’s career.
Haren somehow smoke and mirrored the Nationals for another couple innings and the Nationals dropped the game 6-2. The Nationals were swept out of town in Miami this weekend and now have the worst record in their division at 7-12.
Bryce Harper has five home runs in the 2015 season and 60 for his career.
