Who says we only do Bryce Harper posts when he homers.
On Sunday in Chicago, Harper was walked six times and hit by a pitch. He went 0 for 0 and reached base seven times. Has that ever happened in the history of baseball? Even to Barry Bonds?
The Cubs made the decision that win or lose, they weren’t going to let Bryce Harper beat them. And it’s hard to argue with the results – even if you’re a fan who bought a ticket this weekend in Chi-town to see Harper swing the bat. The Cubbies went out and swept the Nationals in four games, including today’s extra-inning 4-3 win on a Javier Baez walk off home run.
And no, it had never happened prior to today. It was an MLB record.
