May of 2016 is just a month that Bryce Harper won’t miss. It’s the month he’s been pitched around more than any month in his career, and it’s taken him from being white hot to actually struggling.
When he collected with this Mike Leake pitch on Thursday night, it was as if the baseball was screaming and angry flying all the way to the facing of the upper deck at Nationals Park. And it’s always fun to see Mike Leake get knocked around like this:
It was Harper’s 12th home run of the season, and it helped the Nationals secure a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Harper will get hot again, and when he does there will be Hell to pay for opposing pitching. It will happen, because the best always adjust.
