It seemed like it had been a little while since Bryce Harper homered in a game – in actuality it had only been about seven games played. He’s still killing the ball, hitting over .330 playing every day. Today, Jason Hammel had his ‘A’ game and carried his start into the ninth inning at Nationals Park in DC.
The only other run in the game for the Nats to that point was a towering home run by Wilson ‘The Buffalo’ Ramos.
Harper led off the ninth inning and cut the lead in half, getting one out backside into the bullpen off Hammel and knocking him out of the game.
The Nationals lost the game 4-2. The Cubs have given them a run for their money this series. But Bryce Harper’s magical season rolled onward, with his 19th home run and an OPS that now sits at 1.192.
