Julio Teheran and Bryce Harper have quite a history. They don’t like each other, to put it bluntly. Last night in Washington was possibly the Nationals’ game of the year, and we saw the whole thing.
Harper kicked off scoring by unloading on a full count pitch, and it was another monster shot that landed in the upper deck in Washington for his 32nd home run of the season.
The Nationals would rally down 2-1 to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth, and in the tenth frame they got a three run walk-off home run from Michael Taylor to win the game. In a great turn of events, the Mets lost a Jacob DeGrom start in extra innings in Miami to the lowly Marlins. The division race stands at five games.
Bryce Harper is up to an 8.0 fWAR on the year.
