Gavin Floyd hung a slider to Bryce Harper and now he’s never going to see it again

On a night when Gavin Floyd had great stuff to start with (he had allowed only an Ian Desmond double to this point), Bryce Harper was waiting in the weeds.

What follows in the video is his fourth home run of the season, and 26th of his career. It tied the game at 1-1 in a game the Nationals would eventually win 5-2.

When you look at Harper, he doesn’t look like a guy who has the type of power to hit these tape measure shots. Although long ago we all learned that he swings a bat of part ash, part thunderbolt. When tested by mediocre peasants like Floyd, he parties in the cheap seats.
